Our thanks to Mike P for this. The gynaecologist is, of course, named, and his picture shown. Extracts:
In one email she sent to Dr Boret, the woman said: ‘I only ever wanted some excitement and a bit of passion. Would not have grown attached or fallen for you.
‘It would have been a bit of fun for both of us. Your career and family life is safe and always will be.’
A second message, sent seven days later, read: ‘I don’t want to hurt you or start making a complaint – I am not a silly little girl that just because nothing can happen with us that I would seek to gain some revenge all it would do is destroy you and me and our families.’
The woman then wrote to him saying: ‘I want to apologise to you, I am terribly embarrassed for coming onto you. I made it all up I realise it was a very serious allegation to make and I am so so sorry. I hope that in time you will forgive me.’…
She, like all patients involved in medical tribunals, was not named at the hearing.
