Dr Kameran Kader, a former surgeon at the Charles Cross Police Station in Plymouth was accused of misconduct after he left some 700 confidential documents ripped up by a bin in the Lidget Green area of Bradford.
The discovered documents included personal details of sex abuse victims, a witness statement from a victim of child abuse, records of patient examinations, patients’ blood test results, and forms containing suspects’ names and addresses.
Dr Kader told the court he did not know how long he was supposed to keep his records and said
I was quite confused at the time, before revealing he sat in his car, ripped up the papers and put them in carrier bags before dumping them in a bin.
Dr Kader remains under supervision and subject to conditions specified by a General Medical Council for the next 18 months.
