Birmingham surgeon denies patient sex assault charges

A surgeon has appeared in court charged with sexually assaulting patients at two hospitals in Birmingham.

Nafees Hamid is accused of assaulting the women at the Priory and Queen Elizabeth hospitals between January 2011 and February 2013.

Mr Hamid, 50, from Moseley, is employed by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.

He denied all the charges at a hearing at Birmingham Crown Court.

The trust said Mr Hamid was excluded from practising while the investigation is ongoing.

Patients treated in the neurosurgical department have been informed of the inquiry.

Mr Hamid is due back at Birmingham Crown Court on 1 September.
