A GP has been found guilty of committing 25 sex offences against six of his patients.

Manish Shah persuaded victims to go through unnecessary intimate examinations for his own sexual gratification.

He was accused of assaulting six patients at the Mawney Medical Centre from May 2009 to June 2013.

He denied wrongdoing and said he was practising “defensive medicine” but has been found guilty of 25 sexual offences on six patients after a trial.

Ms Bex who prosecuted said: “Fear is an incredible motivator and few health concerns are scarier than cancer. Dr Shah exploited that and used it for his own personal gratification.”

He will be sentenced on 7 February 2020.
