The U.K. Diversity Horror Show: A Definitive Indictment of Third-World Immigrant-Run Healthcare
Bad Medicine: The Sickening Truth About Britain’s Foreign Doctors
by Andrew Joyce, September 2017
An Essex-based family doctor of Indian origin, Manish Shah, has gone on trial in London charged with 118 sexual offences against 54 of his patients, one of whom was under 13 at the time of Shah’s alleged predations. Although the sordid details of the accusations against Shah are yet to fully emerge, we know that the former general practitioner has been charged by the police and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) with 65 counts of assault by penetration, 52 counts of sexual assault and one of sexual assault of a child.
The case is headline news in the UK, where the number of charges is so staggering that the media has been forced to take notice. Quite predictably, however, the mainstream press has refused to contextualize this horrific case within an increasingly apparent ethnic context, and coverage thus far has been dominated by bland descriptions of Shah as a “London doctor” or “Romford doctor.”
In the following essay I want to break the taboo on critique of foreign physicians by analyzing the promotion of foreign doctors in multicultural propaganda, and then offering a counter-narrative of the reality behind the lies – a disturbing record of mass sexual abuse, malpractice, and gross incompetence. Reaching beyond the merely anecdotal, my source material for the latter exploration will be the publicly available records and decisions of Britain’s Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS). As the public body most responsible for protecting the public from bad physicians (by stripping them of license to practice), the records of the MPTS should be considered more reliable and complete than police and CPS statistics concerning the disturbing, and growing, problem of foreign doctors in Britain.
In the third chapter of his recently published The Strange Death of Europe, Douglas Murray lists a number of excuses or lies that have duped European populations into believing that multiculturalism shouldn’t be resisted. These are grouped under the headings ‘Economic,’ ‘An Ageing Population,’ ‘Diversity,’ and ‘The Idea that Immigration is Unstoppable Because of Globalisation.’ Although perhaps implied under economic considerations, Murray failed to significantly explore the often absurd justifications for multiculturalism offered in the name of national infrastructure or public services. This is particularly important because the British people are frequently informed that immigrants are crucial to the smooth functioning of their health service. (Murray does tackle another aspect of this myth by pointing to the fact that Britain’s financially exhausted health service spends more than £20 million every year just on translation services for foreign-born patients.)
Perhaps because the British have placed a high value on their public services, the nation’s elites have historically baited the multicultural hook using precisely this lure. The ‘public services’ excuse goes right back to the origins of multicultural Britain. The first major waves of non-White migrants to Britain (late 1940s–early 1950s) occurred amidst widespread, and largely manufactured, discussion of labor shortages and fears that Britain’s public services (particularly its transport system) would fail without an influx of foreign workers. Even if some elements in the political establishment were genuinely convinced of the need to fill these phantom labor shortages, government investigations into the new Afro-Caribbean population revealed that such notions were grossly misjudged. In one report, completed in December 1953, civil servants stated that the new Black population found it difficult to secure employment because the newcomers had “low output” and their working life was marked by “irresponsibility, quarrelsomeness, and lack of discipline.” Black women were “slow mentally,” and Black men were “more volatile in temperament than white workers … more easily provoked to violence … lacking in stamina,” and generally “not up to the standards required by British employers.” Despite such facts and admonitions, Britons, and their counterparts in much of the rest of Europe, continued to permit mass influxes of foreigners in the deluded belief that stemming such the flow would cause their nation to grind to a halt.
As with the creation of the ‘race relations’ industry, and the development of ‘hate crime’ legislation, much of the propaganda underpinning this myth can be traced to democratically unaccountable ‘think tanks.’ For example, in 2014 the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) published a report stating that 26% of British doctors had been born abroad and warning that immigration reform would mean “many NHS services would struggle to provide effective care to their patients.” Last year, in the wake of the Brexit vote, IPPR published another ‘study’ in which it made the stronger claim that the National Health Service would “collapse” without immigrant medical professionals. The document demanded a waiver of fees, and outrageously argued that immigrant physicians shouldn’t have to sit English language tests, or fulfil residency requirements. Staff rosters for IPPR reveal a predictable motley of ethnics, Jews, and upper-middle class White urbanite ‘progressives,’ while a perusal of its funding sources uncovers the less than shocking revelation that one of IPPR’s largest donors is George Soros’s Open Society Foundation. Although this form of mass migration promotion has hitherto been most prominent in Britain, I’ve noticed that efforts to persuade Americans of the need to permit an influx of foreign physicians have begun.
Pro-immigrant propaganda aside, it is true that Britain has allowed itself to become dependent on foreign doctors. This dependency is due to a confluence of factors. The nation has inexplicably failed to devote the time and resources to training sufficient numbers of ethnic Britons at its world-class universities, while simultaneously setting meagre immigration standards for medical graduates from dubious Third World institutions. Disastrously, at the same time, it has permitted unprecedented levels of mass migration and has thus endured the resultant, and entirely unnatural, swelling of its population. This has unsurprisingly placed an enormous strain on public services. Rather than tackle the root cause of public service failings — mass immigration and the multicultural project — the government has poured more fuel on the fire. It aims to solve a disaster caused by the mass importation of foreigners by importing yet more foreigners.
The most recent government statistics indicate that around 15% of practicing doctors in Britain have been imported from South Asia (India and Pakistan) and Africa. A further 9.8% were admitted from other countries in the European Union, bringing the total proportion of non-British doctors to around 25%. This alarming figure is considerably more unsettling when placed in the context of malpractice, incompetence, and abuse. During the last 12 months a total of 281 decisions on cases of serious complaint were reached the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), which, together with the General Medical Council (GMC), is responsible for registering, disciplining, and ‘striking off’ dangerous physicians working in Britain. Ignored by the mainstream media, I took it upon myself to conduct an analysis of the MPTS’s list of tribunal decisions — an analysis which revealed that non-British doctors (25% of the total) are responsible for at least 80% of tribunal cases, the vast majority of them bearing Muslim, South Asian, or African names (interestingly, Jewish physicians are also over-represented relative to their share of the UK population). We thus appear to have found ourselves in the all-too familiar position of attempting to fill manufactured labour shortages with brutes and inadequates. As we move through some of the more notable tribunal cases, keep in mind that they are from the last 12 months alone.
Deeper research on MPTS’s list of names reveals that the NHS has developed within its body of senior physicians a class of foreign sexual deviants. In one particularly repugnant example, African import, and urologist, Kwame Somuah-Boateng told one of his patients (suffering from Multiple Sclerosis) that sex with him would help cure her illness. The Telegraph reported: “The 43-year-old doctor told the woman that intercourse with him would stimulate the muscles in her legs and had sex with her in his hospital sleeping quarters saying: ‘Trust me I’m a doctor — it will help you to get your sensitivity back.’ He claimed having sex would help her ‘regain the feelings in her vagina’ and would ‘help her pelvic floor muscles because they were weak.’ He said it would help her ‘to feel normal — feel like a woman.’”
Another African, Adewale Lawrence, working as a doctor at a Lancashire hospital, is currently suspended but appallingly remains on the medical register despite dismissing his “sexually-motivated” harassment of a female junior doctor as merely “the African way.”
Britain’s female patients may well need to become accustomed to the ‘African way,’ but problems are not limited to physicians from that continent. Similar explanations for the sexual harassment of six female co-workers were offered by the Indian Dr Shiv Bagchi, who explained that he “had bachelor blood” when challenged on his behavior, which included groping medical students while telling them that he “gets urges like any man.” . . .
Prison sentences have sometimes followed. Zimbabwean family doctor Maxman Tembo sexually assaulted four female patients at his Liverpool clinic before he was struck off and given a suspended prison sentence. Heart surgeon Mohamed Amrani was struck off after a series of rapes and sexual assaults on his patients, while Mohammad Haq, a family doctor employed in Scotland, was struck off and sent to prison for fondling the breasts of a teenage girl and three other female patients. In a particularly horrific case, Indian consultant Pradeep Agarwal was struck off after it was reported that he had observed his unaccompanied female patients undressing before performing entirely unnecessary, painful, and intimate examinations. According to tribunal records these involved the entirely unnecessary digital penetration of one patient’s vagina and simultaneous penetration of her anus with a scope — all for Agarwal’s own perverted gratification.
One of the most disturbing aspects of my analysis of the tribunal records was the number of foreign sexual deviants who were permitted to remain on the medical register or were restored to it following brief suspensions, and thus have continued access to patients. For example, Pakistani Riaz Raza is allowed to practice medicine unconditionally despite a history of sexual misconduct involving the inappropriate touching of female patients. African gynaecologist Olumide Yusuff has ongoing access to patients despite a history of clinical errors and the sexually motivated harassment of female colleagues. Pakistani Shah Said Shah currently has access to patients following the conclusion of his nine month suspension for “inappropriate and sexually motivated access to medical records and communication with a patient between September 2014 and November 2014. … In December 2015, the panel found Dr Shah’s fitness to practice to be impaired by reason of his misconduct. The panel considered that Dr Shah’s actions constituted “grooming” of a vulnerable patient and were sexually motivated.”
Indian psychologist Shekhar Chandra remains on the medical register despite grooming and engaging in sex with a mentally ill patient who subsequently took a drug overdose. Nigerian Babatunde Aranmolate has inexplicably been restored to the medical register despite a previous suspension for “working whilst suspended, inaccurate completion of application forms, sexually motivated behaviour towards three women in the course of your work (causing them all real and significant distress), inaccurate completion of three GMC Employer Details Forms, inaccurate information on a CV and the writing of a prescription for a family member using a prescription pad retained from your previous employment.” Another African, Xavier Mmono, has now been restored to the medical register following a brief suspension for “groping a patient’s breasts, conducting intimate examinations of her without a chaperone present, asking her to touch his ‘d***’, and sending her sexually suggestive text messages.”
Indian, Pakistani, African, and Arab doctors have also been heavily implicated in the sexual abuse of female staff, medical students, and other vulnerable employees or volunteers within the National Health Service. Indian surgeon Pogolu Prasad received just a six-month suspension for the unwanted touching and repeated sexual harassment of one of his medical assistants. Another Indian, Vinesh Naraya, received a nine-month suspension for sexually motivated texts and inappropriate communications with three female medical students under his supervision. Egyptian Alaa Abdel-Rahman is now able to practice medicine in Britain despite a conviction for making a young female medical student unnecessarily remove all clothing from the upper half of her body for an unsupervised “breast examination.” In a similar case, another Egyptian, Nooman Ahmed, has had his suspension revoked and once more has access to patients, despite inciting a seventeen-year-old girl on work experience at his clinic to submit to a ‘chest examination’ demonstration, during which he fondled her breasts for his own sexual gratification. The Nigerian Enyinnaya Anosike will have access to patients in a matter of weeks, when his 12-month suspension expires. He had been suspended for the sexually motivated touching of three female colleagues.
It is clear that the health and well-being of patients is being placed in danger by leaving them in the hands of poorly trained, deviant, and often unstable individuals who are poorly vetted and have cultural and ethnic backgrounds which render them wholly unsuitable for the work in which they are employed. The country’s disciplinary bodies are also becoming increasingly lax, especially in cases involving foreign physicians. The needs of patients, and often the most vulnerable of them, appear secondary to the ‘need’ to permit the ongoing and untroubled influx of these ‘essential’ public service workers. That leniency has reached unthinkable levels should have been apparent in the Daily Mail’s report that “The number of doctors licensed despite convictions or cautions for sex and child pornography offences has almost trebled since 2007.” . . .
Foreign doctors have also been responsible for a growing number of deaths and mutilations due to gross negligence and incompetence. It is truly remarkable that Nigerian Hazida Bawa-Garba remains on the medical register, having received a mere 12-month suspension for causing the death of a six-year-old boy through gross negligence. Indian Zubair Bajwa remains on the register unconditionally despite being responsible for the death of a gallbladder patient who succumbed to cardiac arrest as a result of internal bleeding which Bajwa failed to detect despite multiple examinations. In another case, the Pakistani Nadeem Azeez was responsible for the death of a 30-year-old teacher following a botched Caesarean section. African Lawal Haruna was struck off after a succession of surgical catastrophes which included removing healthy ovaries, fallopian tubes, and even a pad of fat, all of which he had mistaken for the appendix. Raghavan Kadalraja, who had been working at Bedford Hospital as a consultant pediatrician since 2006, was struck off after repeatedly failing to provide even the most elementary care and diagnoses to four children. In two notable instances Kadalraja was found sitting in his office ‘eating breakfast’ when he should have been attending to a three-week-old baby with severe fever and a nine-year-old with developmental problems who was having a seizure. Others are shown inexplicable leniency, such as the lazy African pediatrician Chinedu Bosah, who was given a 12 month suspension for leaving newborn babies with junior doctors and medical students so that he could take “unauthorized naps” and sudden absences spanning days.
It is a matter of documented fact that foreign doctors from India and Africa are responsible for more than 90% of tribunal cases involving incompetence. The details from some of these cases are stunning. For example, Indian junior doctor Sripathy Subramanian was struck off the medical register after it was discovered at one hospital that he was so lacking in basic skills that he “did not recognise that one patient had normal breathing,” and was unable to name any major bones or arteries. Another Indian, Vasudha Mashankar, was struck off after causing the death of a young boy by failing to identify an intracranial bleed. Nigerian gynecologist Benjamin Ogbonna botched his handling of six patients in such a fashion that he was struck off for having “an old fashioned approach to medicine; making premature judgements, overlooking relevant matters, and a persistent pattern of deficient professional performance.”
These are the people our governments tell us will solve the problem of our ageing society by ‘caring for us’ as we get older and more infirm. . .
Bad Medicine II: The Escalating Problem of Third World Doctors
by Andrew Joyce, August 2018
For some time now I’ve been receiving requests to produce a sequel to a September 2017 piece on the disastrous consequences of the mass importation of doctors from the Third World to Britain. Until recently I resisted the temptation to do so because I felt the original article was definitive in outlining the major thematic issues: Third World doctors are responsible for at least 80% of malpractice cases at U.K. Medical Tribunals; Third World doctors are significantly more likely than native British doctors to engage in the sexual abuse of their patients; and, finally, the medical establishment seems to be complicit in both the covering up of these crimes, mainly via the imposition of extraordinarily lenient sanctions. A number of recent stories, however, from the United States and Australia as well as the U.K., have proven sufficiently unsettling and infuriating that further coverage and discussion of this horrific epidemic is necessary. . .
In March it was reported that “1 in 6 doctors convicted of sex offences are still able to practice medicine,” and last year it emerged that more than 1,000 doctors in the U.K. have criminal convictions for offences including possession of child pornography, cruelty to children, soliciting prostitution, and the theft of drugs. The proliferation of criminal elements and foreign ethnic physicians in the British health service has led to a situation where recourse is no longer required to the records of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service. There are almost daily headlines involving malpractice and sexual abuse among foreign doctors, though these pieces are always straining to treat the case on an individual basis. The aim of the following is to collate some of the most pertinent cases from the last 11 months in order to demonstrate a horrific pattern that is getting worse, not only in Britain but throughout the West. As White populations age and we divert more and more money away from training our own youth, we will become more and more reliant on immigrant doctors with low aptitude, poor training, and brutal sensibilities. This is a terrifying prospect.
I. Sexual Abuse
Sexual abuse and misconduct remains the foremost cause for legal proceedings against foreign doctors. As suspects, defendants, and convicted criminals, South Asians from India and Pakistan are over-represented to an extraordinary extent. In July, Accident and Emergency doctor Mohammed Tariquezzaman, 55, was struck off the medical register after fondling a 20 year old patient during a routine medical exam. The victim, referred to as Patient A throughout the hearing, recalled how Tariquezzaman watched her get undressed in a consulting room in University College Hospital before he pulled her underwear down to her thighs and smirked as he said she had a “nice body.” Despite the patient saying she felt uncomfortable as he fondled her genitals, Tariquezzaman laughed and said: “This isn’t the first time this has been done to you.” He then asked for her phone number and offered her free treatment at his private practice, suggesting they “go out for a curry.”
In January, midlands family doctor Jaswant Rathore, 60, was jailed for 12 years for sexually assaulting four of his patients. Rathore was convicted of eight charges of sexual assault and two counts of assault by penetration on patients over a period of two and a half years. He had assaulted patients who came to see him with medical complaints ranging from vomiting to hayfever, pretending that medical “massages,” or intimate sexual groping, were necessary for diagnosis or treatment. In June, Huddersfield gynaecologist Iftekhar Ahmed was found guilty of several sexual misconduct offences in relation to his treatment of a female patient. Ahmed, 51, who is now believed to be practising medicine in the United States, is originally from Bangladesh. He was found guilty of conducting an intimate examination of the patient without her consent, asking her inappropriate sexual questions including: “Do you like licking?”, and asking her if she wanted to have sex while examining her. He then asked “what sex toys she used and if he could look at them.” Ahmed watched the patient undress, and later “accessed her medical records for her telephone number and called her numerous times, asking her more inappropriate questions about her privates.
In another horrific case, homosexual Indian-born family doctor Manav Arora, 37, was jailed for two years after being found guilty of sexually assaulting a male patient. Arora performed oral sex on the patient, who had limited movement, while inserting a catheter. The trial also heard from two men who claim they were assaulted in the same way by Arora four years earlier. After the verdict, the prosecutor said Arora had also been suspended in 2005 after a similar accusation was made at a hospital in Portsmouth, but had then been allowed to resume working with the public. Arora had also received a caution from West Midlands Police after being caught engaging in a sex act with another man in a public park less than two weeks after the incident for which he was convicted. The case was reminiscent of that of Farouk Patel, 35, a Leicester family doctor who was cleared in January of sexually assaulting a male patient but admitted to having “risky homosexual sex” with a number of men in his consulting room, and was described by prosecutors as having “a voracious appetite for homosexual sex.”
Female patients of course represent the majority of victims. In March, hospital doctor Maher Khetyar was struck off the medical register after being found guilty of sexually abusing two female patients and a female colleague. In the case of each of the patients, Khetyar pretended to conduct legitimate medical examinations, fondling their breasts for sexual reasons.” In April, family doctor Rajeshkumar Mehta, 64, was jailed for sexually assaulting a patient who visited him fearing she had heart attack symptoms. Mehta used the opportunity to grope the woman’s breasts before asking her “questions about her personal life and sexual partners.” Just after I published my first TOO essay on this subject, family doctor Mohammed Ihsan, 35, went before a medical tribunal following accusations of sexual assault against one of his patients. According to reports, Ihsan “unzipped his trousers and offered to have sex with a female patient when she asked him about the contraceptive pill.” He then allegedly put his crotch in the face of the woman and kissed her on the lips, telling her: “Having lots of sex makes you healthy.” Alan Taylor, a lawyer for the General Medical Council, added: “Following that, doctor Ihsan said to Patient B: “I want to show you something. I want you to see my b***s.” He repeated this and kept saying: “I really, really want you to see my b***s,” and he stood up, unzipped his trousers and put his crotch near her face.” He also asked if he could install pornography on her home computer.”
The most notorious recent case of sexual abuse on a patient, however, did not occur in the U.K. but in the United States, where the problem of Third World doctors is also rapidly coming to prominence. Last week, Texas doctor Shafeeq Sheikh managed to avoid doing jail time despite being convicted of raping a heavily sedated and asthmatic patient. What makes the light sentence even more galling was the calculating and callous nature of Sheikh’s crime. Everything had been premeditated, including his disabling of the patient’s nurse alarm, and measures he undertook to ensure uninterrupted access to her room.
Patients are not the only at-risk persons from Third World doctors. Colleagues, especially junior colleagues, and other members of the public are equally vulnerable to the predations of sexual psychopaths from the sub-continent. In November 2017, Imran Rauf Qureshi received just a 12 month suspension for groping a nurse’s breasts while working at Trafford General Hospital in Manchester. Qureshi later claimed he was “looking for a romantic friendship” with the nurse but that “cultural differences” meant his approaches had been misinterpreted — an excuse dismissed by the Medical Tribunal. Just a few months ago, Accident and Emergency doctor Srikishen Parthasarathy, 44 and from Bangalore, received just a 2-month suspension from the Medical Tribunal after sexually assaulting two trainee nurses, including grabbing one between the legs. One nursing assistant claimed Parthasarathy tried to “grab her breasts, slapped her on the bottom and asked ‘do you swallow?” In March, orthopaedic surgeon Milind Mehta, then located at a hospital in Scotland, escaped punishment of any kind despite being found guilty of sexually assaulting a colleague. Mehta “asked the woman into his office at Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin, Scotland, on the pretext of showing her medical slides — only to press himself against her chest before kissing her repeatedly around the neck and shoulder.” He apparently escaped punishment for this by organizing Powerpoint presentations using himself as the example to stop other doctors harassing colleagues. A more reassuring punishment was delivered when in November 2017 Accident and Emergency doctor Mohammed Yasin was struck off the medical register after repeatedly groping two nurses and pressing himself against them. Egyptian senior gynaecologist Khaled Ismail, 50, was permanently struck off the medical register in June after groping a midwife while she was busy delivering twins, and molesting three other female junior colleagues over a two-year period.
II. Negligence and Incompetence
Aside from sexual abuse, the most common instances of malpractice among Third World doctors concern gross negligence and incompetence. Back in March the world stood aghast at news that Kenyan doctors at Nairobi’s Kenyatta National Hospital had performed brain surgery on the wrong patient. The entire staff involved in the surgery was suspended after it came to light they only discovered they had the wrong patient after hours of searching for a blood clot that was in fact in another patient. Such stories may, among those with the darkest sense of humor, have a certain comedic value. Unfortunately, the West’s ongoing practice of importing medical staff from the Third World has resulted in similar travesties being played out in our own nations. In June, a medical tribunal found that Indian senior gynaecologist Vaishnavy Laxman committed a “failure in her clinical decision-making” when she decided to make her patient deliver a premature baby naturally rather than via c-section. According to The Telegraph:
When Laxman urged the patient to push whilst she applied traction to the baby’s legs, the baby was decapitated with the head remaining stuck in the womb. Two other doctors subsequently carried out a c-section to remove the head, which was “re-attached” to the baby’s body so that his mother could hold him.”
Despite the tribunal’s findings, Laxman was permitted to return to work immediately because, in the tribunal’s estimation, her conduct represented “a single error of judgement made in very difficult circumstances” — an apologia likely to bring little comfort to the mother of the decapitated infant, or to those who are yet to come under Laxman’s “care.” . . .
III. Drug Abuse, Fraud and Violence
Third World doctors have also proven highly problematic in relation to access to drugs. Indian Hemanth Karkala Kamath was struck off the medical register after it was discovered he had stolen 16 ampoules of drug Midozalam, a hypnotic sedation drug, while working for Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust in the anaesthetics department. Meanwhile Zimbabwean oncology doctor Tichafasey Mtetwa, was struck off the register after it emerged he had a history of stealing prescription drugs for personal use as well as there bring “concerns raised about his clinical assessment, diagnosis, knowledge and behavior.”
Questions should also be raised about the assessment and verification of qualifications purportedly held by immigrant doctors. In July, 41 year old family doctor Kashif Samin was struck off the medical register after it was discovered his curriculum vitaeboasted of 46 years of medical experience— meaning the miraculous Mr Samin was practising medicine five years before his birth. Samin also claimed to be a Fellow of the American Association of Aesthetic Surgeons when he was not, and claimed he’d had an article published in the Journal of Gastroentology, but no evidence was found that it existed and it was deemed “entirely fictitious.”
The Western reliance on, and need for, foreign doctors is largely illusional. We need surplus doctors only to the extent that we possess surplus populations. One of the problems of the contemporary West is not only that we have lost sight of our past, but also, and perhaps more importantly, that we have lost sight of our future. There is almost no sensible planning for the future or co-ordinated education of our youth. We live in an age where the supposed cure for every socio-economic problem is the injection of more diversity, rather than producing more children and educating them according to the needs of the present and future.
The belief that importing workers is a panacea to economic pressures was always built on false foundations. The classic example is the nation bemoaning a lack of plumbers and builders, which then imports cohorts of foreign plumbers and builders – who then need many more homes to live in, requiring more plumbers and builders to construct them, and so on. Similarly, in contemporary Britain, massive pressures on the National Health Service caused by mass immigration are being “eased” via the mass immigration of dubiously-trained foreign doctors. The only result of this development is the rapid decline in the quality of service offered by the NHS, the increased danger faced by patients, and the further expansion of multiculturalism into all areas of life.
The only sensible solution to this chaos is to conclusively bring the multicultural project to an end, to repatriate the surplus populations, and eject those whose dubious “skills” are no longer required.
