Locum At South Tipperary Hospital, Had Been Struck Off UK Medical Register.

A 58 year old Physician, named as Dr Ragheb Nouman, who was employed previously as a locum in seven Irish hospitals, (including South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary), since his arrival in Ireland in 2018; had failed to disclose to the Irish Medical Council (IMC) that he had been struck off the UK Medical Register, some two years earlier, for substandard clinical performance and making racist remarks against Indian colleagues.

Dr Nouman, a father of three, appeared before a ‘Fitness to Practise’ inquiry yesterday, facing accusations of professional misconduct and poor professional performance, while informing the IMC that he was working in Romania, when in truth he was, in fact, employed in the United Kingdom, before having his name removed from the UK medical register in January of 2016.

Dr Nouman, who qualified as a doctor in Romania in 1991, is accused of providing information which he knew to be untrue on his application form, latter required in order to register as a doctor here in the Irish Republic, in April of 2018; erasing all of his previous work history which related to the UK, from this initial application.

Syrian born Dr Nouman, who worked as a locum senior house officer for short periods in seven Irish hospitals, between September 2018 and April 2019, was struck off the medical register in the UK, following an inquiry which found his clinical work unacceptable and that he had made comments of a racist nature.

The hearing was adjourned until next week.
