A surgeon sacked by Oxford University Hospitals Trust for allegedly sexually harassing two trainee doctors was yesterday (Wednesday) due to begin his evidence at an employment tribunal.

The middle-aged consultant – who cannot be named for legal reasons – is suing for unfair dismissal, breach of contract, racial discrimination, sexual discrimination and loss of wages and claiming allegations were fabricated as part of a move by Trust managers to force him out of his job amid budget cuts.
