WORKFORCE: A GP has appeared at Maidstone Crown Court after being charged with sexually assaulting two women at St Mary’s Medical Centre in Strood.

According to local press reports, Babatunde Oshinusi, 43, faces four charges of sexually assaulting the two patients at the centre in 2007 and 2010.

In a statement issued last week, NHS Medway said: “Kent Police charged Dr Babatunde Oshinusi with sexual assault on 6 September 2012.”

The primary care trust cluster added that he was suspended by NHS Kent and Medway on 27 July, 2010.

“Practice staff are unable to answer any questions about this incident as it is an ongoing criminal case,” it added.
