Peterborough Doc Struck Off For Going Awol
20 August 2015, 12:04
A doctor's been struck off for pretending to be on a part-time contract when he was actually paid to be at Peterborough City Hospital full time.
65 year-old Doctor Sathiyakeerthy Ariyanayagam was a lead-consultant for sexual health but he told colleagues he only worked Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays.
His contract though was for 5 day working week.
A Medical Practitioners Tribunal have convicted him of misconduct saying behaviour "fell seriously short of the standards expected of a doctor".
He's now got to pay Peterborough City Hospital all the money back.
