Dr Al-Any had been suspended at two previous tribunals, before being struck off on Friday January 5.

A former doctor at the Whittington hospital has been struck off after a series of “totally unacceptable and inappropriate” communications to colleagues and patients.

Dr Kamal Hameed Ubaid Al-Any appeared before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal service for the third time last week. He worked in the Accident and Emergency department in September and October 2013

At two hearings, in 2016 and 2017, he had been suspended for verbally abusing patients and colleagues.

At the time it was thought the concerns had been “easily remediable.”

However in the hearing last Friday , tribunal chair Mr James Newton-Price said that Dr Al-Any is “entirely remorseless and likely to repeat such behaviour in future.”

A tribunal in 2016 found Dr Al-Any was rude to a patient, “Patient B”, and her mother, “Miss C”, during a blood test on October 20 2013.

He had also attempted to stop his colleague, Dr Khan from seeking advice when he noticed Patient B was distressed.

The tribunal found he had then sent derogatory emails about Miss C and Dr Khan in response to a complaint.

While the original tribunal found Dr Al-Any’s actions were misconduct, they believed it was an isolated incident.

The decision was taken to suspend him for four months, which was reviewed in 2017. However at the hearing in March 2017, he was suspended for a further nine months after Dr Al-Any refused to apologise for his actions.

During the final hearing, Mr Newton-Price revealed details of further abusive emails that Dr Al-Any had sent in October, and November 2017 to GMC members and former colleagues.

The tribunal heard that he had said they were “liars, cheats and criminals,” without foundation.

In his final judgement, Mr Newton-Price said: “Dr Al-Any’s behaviour is fundamentally incompatable with his registration as a doctor, and that erasure is the necessary sanction for the protection of the public.”
