The immigrant medics responsible for a litany of blunders

Dr Dawar Siddiqi, who worked as a locum consultant radiologist at Bantry General Hospital between May and September 2013, was found guilty of poor professional performance.

He was accused of making serious errors in relation to a number of his CT scan reports. They included scans of patients who had a potential brain tumour and another examination of possible cancer of the lymph nodes.

Dr Iman Ekky was found guilty of poor professional performance in November 2013 after misdiagnosing a woman with herpes, despite the woman’s insistence she was in a loving, monogamous relationship.

During the inquiry, the 36-year-old victim said she felt stupid and that she was being told that, if she was not “playing away”, then her husband was.

Dr Vincent Osunkwo was found guilty of professional misconduct and poor professional performance in December 2013 for trying to read an X-ray upside down and using a scalpel in an attempt to insert a tube into a patient.

Dr Mihai Anton, a paediatric surgeon from Romania who was employed in Our Lady’s Hospital in Crumlin, had difficulty scrubbing up for theatre and putting on a gown and surgical gloves.

He was hired after a phone interview and worked for 10 days at the hospital before being suspended.

Dr Bolarinwa Oluwole was found guilty of professional misconduct for lying about his past when applying to work in Ireland.

While working in Canada, he had sex with two women who came to him for psychiatric help and he made sexual advances to a third while working in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.

    Somebody has to be held accountable for recruiting these people. Properly conducted background checks were obviously not made.

    I had an appointment at Navan hospital last year. ALL the doctors were non white. When the negro ‘doctor’ called my name for me to come with him I got up and walked out the door. I will not be seen by an African who probably bought his medics cert. No one can tell me that training to be a doctor in Africa is up to western standards.
