Erasure

Dr Ahmedsowida has appealed.

'115. Found proved. The evidence established that Dr Ahmedsowida was born on XXX. The Tribunal found that he knew that.

126. Found proved Dr Ahmedsowida was dishonestly maintaining that he was born on 1 January 1976.

136. Found proved. The Tribunal found that Dr Ahmedsowida was deliberately hiding the fact that he was employed by the Hospital...

146. The Tribunal accepted Dr B’s account of the incident. It was contemporaneously noted by herself, and she went to see the Clinical Director immediately afterwards, something which she told the Tribunal she had never done before. That account is independently corroborated by the datix. Further the Tribunal accepted that she, as the senior of the two junior doctors, was appointed to undertake the role of supervisor –by Dr Nand in her stead.

48. The overriding difficulty which Dr Ahmedsowida faces in this case is that essentially it is a case of dishonesty. The Tribunal has found that Dr Ahmedsowida has behaved dishonestly in making applications for employment at Worcestershire Royal Hospital and at the Trust, he has been dishonest in responding to inquiries about his time in Worcestershire Royal Hospital. He has sought to cover up that dishonesty in an interview with Dr A. He has sought to sidestep it by his application for employment at the Trust by further dishonesty. In the view of the Tribunal, he did not attempt to set the record straight when he was at the Trust in later 2018. As he has never accepted his dishonesty, he has never sought to explain it. By the same token, he has never sought to explain the inaccuracies and inconsistencies which the Tribunal has found were occasioned by his dishonesty. He has simply apologised for them.' (page 109)
