Tribunal was wrong to take no action against junior doctor who sent explicit messages to two nurses

The High Court ruled that a junior doctor who sent unwanted sexually explicit messages to two nurses should have faced sanctions from the medical practitioners tribunal. The tribunal had initially decided to take no action against the doctor, citing exceptional circumstances and his exemplary work. The General Medical Council (GMC) appealed this decision, arguing that the doctor should have been suspended from the medical register. The High Court found that the tribunal erred in excusing the doctor’s behavior and should have imposed sanctions. The doctor in question, Nour Mohamed Magdy Aly Rezk, had been described as a diligent and professional doctor by the tribunal.
