AN obsessive doctor has been struck-off after he accessed a patient’s contact details and bombarded her with texts, flowers and a card.

Doctor Chizoba Christopher Uzoh, from Chapelford, was employed as a locum GP at Murdishaw Health Centre in Runcorn when "Patient A" attended an appointment with him in 2016.

The Nigeria-born doctor, who now works in Canada, continued his attempts to make contact with the patient after she had told him to stop.

In one text message, Dr Uzoh said he was "single, looking for a serious relationship and not intending to mess about" and asked her on a date.

Another text from Dr Uzoh said: “I’ve been feeling like a schoolboy meeting a girl he fancied for the first time.”

The patient described feeling "uncomfortable" because of Dr Uzoh’s actions and told him she was "scared and unnerved."

He then sent her flowers, with a message in attached card reading: “This is my small way of saying sorry.

“My heart is pure, I care and I hope it would be possible to make you mine some day.”

Dr Uzoh told the woman he "did not mean to be creepy" and would "leave her alone" but later messaged her asking why she would not "give a chance to a good-looking guy who has a job with huge earning potential."

He did not attend the tribunal hearing on June 6 and was not represented.

Dr Uzoh’s case was first heard by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal at a hearing in May 2017 which determined that his actions were sexually motivated.

He was suspended for 12 months to give him time to address the concerns raised then and since.

On Thursday, June 6, Mr Slack, acting on behalf of the GMC, told the tribunal that there has been a "wholesale disregard" for these matters by doctor Uzoh.

He said: “Doctor Uzoh has not provided any evidence of any further development of his insight into his past actions and refuses to acknowledge that there was any sexual motivation in his actions towards Patient A.

MPTS tribunal chair Damian Cooper determined that doctor Uzoh should be struck-off from the medical register.
