A senior doctor who had an affair with a patient he diagnosed with multiple sclerosis repeatedly told her having s’ex was good for her condition, a medical tribunal heard today.
Dr Kwame Somuah-Boateng, 43, told the woman that intercourse with him would stimulate the muscles in her legs and he had s’ex with her in his hospital sleeping quarters, saying: ‘Trust me I’m a doctor – it will help you to get your sensitivity back.’
The affair began in July 2012 after Patient A was admitted to the A&E department at Croydon University Hospital where Boateng comforted her after she was diagnosed with MS. During their illicit romance, Somuah-Boateng took his mistress who is in her 30s to a christening and vowed to marry her and have a her son by her – even though he already had a wife and daughters in his native Ghana, it was claimed.

He claimed having s’ex would help her ‘regain the feelings in her honeypot’ and would ‘help her pelvic floor muscles because they were weak.’ He said it would help her ‘to feel normal – feel like a woman.’
The six-month fling ended when the woman – known as Patient A – discovered she might be pregnant only for him to warn her his wife would ‘kill’ the baby, it was alleged.
When she thought she had miscarried he tried to have s’ex with her again.
She discovered what Dr Somuah-Boateng had told her about s’ex and her condition was false when she went for a subsequent medical appointment for her MS, it was said.
