Hospital suspends Muslim doctor over alleged Islamic conversion attempts
A Muslim doctor has been suspended and reported to the Medical Council for allegedly trying to convert patients to Islam.
The doctor, who worked in a south county Dublin hospital, was suspended several months ago, following complaints from the mother of a 19-year-old female patient and a fellow member of staff.
The Health Service Executive referred the complaint to the Medical Council, which is examining the matter. It is understood that the man denies the allegations and claims he referred to Islam during a normal conversation.
The HSE’s Dymphna Bracken said: ‘‘Following complaints from the public and members of staff, a non-consultant hospital doctor has been placed on administrative leave.”
