Doctor sexually harassed medical students.

Byline: JOSHUA TAYLOR Social Affairs Writer @taylorjoshua1

A SENIOR doctor tried to seduce University of Liverpool medical students by inviting them to the pub and his home.

Dr Vinesh Narayan, a consultant psychiatrist and NHS tutor, attempted to "pursue sexual relationships" with three trainees.

The divorced medic tried to kiss two of the students, bought alcohol for them and sent flirtatious text and emails.

Dr Narayan, who worked for the 5 Boroughs Partnership mental health trust, has been rapped by a medical tribunal for his "dishonourable and disgraceful" behaviour.

He invited the first student - known only as Witness A - to his home, where he asked if she had a boyfriend and tried to kiss her cheek.

Several months later, Dr Narayan drove a second student - Witness B - to a pub where he bought her an alcoholic drink and touched legs with her.

He also read her palm, leaned towards her and touched her hair.

And a third student - Witness C - was targeted by Dr Narayan when he took her to a pub and told her spending time with him could be the difference between a "good" and an "excellent" grade in her exams.

He also placed his hand on her arm and brushed her cheek with his lips.

Dr Narayan also sent inappropriate emails and text messages to the students.

Dr Surendra Kumar, who chaired the misconduct panel, told the shamed medic: "You abused your position of authority."

Dr Narayan, who said he was "deeply ashamed", must obey a strict set of conditions for the next nine months.
