A married Ghanaian doctor is being accused of convincing a patient to have sex with him by saying it would help relieve her multiple sclerosis.
The doctor and his patient had an affair that lasted 6 months, in which he promised her marriage and a son although married with a family in Ghana.
Describing how sex would benefit her, Somuah-Boateng is accused of claiming that intercourse would “help her pelvic floor muscles because they were weak.” “He told me sex was good for my condition numerous times.
Initially I thought it was going to help me get my feelings back – I just wanted to be normal again,” the patient said.
Somuah-Boetang, of Mitcham, South London, denies he initiated contact with Patient A, insisting she got in touch with him and asked him for the sexual relationship.
He also denies separate charges of supplying her with prescription medication.
In 2015 he stood trial at Croydon Crown Court for attempted rape and sexual assault against the same woman, but was cleared. He is now facing the General Medical Council.
