A surgeon who is suing Oxford University Hospitals Trust after being sacked for allegedly sexually harassing two trainee doctors, vehemently denied the allegations at a tribunal hearing in Reading today (Thursday).

The middle-aged surgeon, who cannot be named for legal reasons, took the Trust to tribunal for unfair dismissal, breach of contract, racial discrimination, sexual discrimination and breach of contract.

In his witness statement presented at the hearing, the surgeon denied touching one trainee doctor’s leg inappropriately and denied he attempted to arrange a dinner date with another at his flat.
