Nigerian Doctor Who Abused Patient, Given 6 Months Conditional Discharge.

                                Dr Abiodun Olumuyiwa Bale, 42, denied being a 'thug' at the hearing Dr Abiodun Bale
A doctor attacked a female patient in his surgery when she disagreed with his diagnosis. Dr Abiodun Bale, 42, grabbed Sheena Cunningham as she tried to leave his consultation room in tears after they argued over treatment for a facial condition. The doctor, who is of Nigerian origin, denied assault when he appeared in court but was found guilty after a two-day trial. He was given a six-month  conditional discharge but will face a disciplinary hearing at work and could lose his job. Bale, who qualified as a doctor at the University of Lagos in 1995, worked as a gynaecologist in his home country before coming to Britain and registering with the General Medical Council in 2006. He was given a licence to practise here in November 2009 and was on a placement, for speciality GP training, at Hyndburn Medical Practice in Accrington, Lancashire, when the assault happened on March 26.
