BARNETT: DOCTOR POSED AS 'KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR'

CENTRAL LONDON A doctor claimed he took a camera and wallet from an unlocked Polish hotel room so he could be a 'knight in shining armour' when he returned them to a 'pretty lady', a tribunal heard. Dr Robert Barnett, who was staying at the Poznan Novotel while visiting his daughter, said he wanted to ask a woman, who he had seen in the corridor earlier, out for a drink.

SUNDARESAN:GP WHO PRETENDED HE TREATED DEAD PATIENTS STRUCK OFF

ROCHDALE, GR MANCHESTER A £130,000-a-year GP who pretended he had treated patients who were already dead to hit NHS targets could faces being struck off. Dr Thirumurugan Sundaresan, 40, made 7,600 amendments to the records of 1,700 patients in just one weekend, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service heard. Investigators found he claimed to have seen one patient who was on holiday, two who were not in the country, one who was in prison and two who were dead, at the two-partner practice.
