A doctor is to face trial over alleged sex offences carried out in two hospitals in Buckinghamshire.

Thirty-nine-year-old Salman Qureshi from Aylesbury is charged with two counts each of sexual assault of a female, and assault of a female over 13 by penetration.

Thames Valley Police said the charges were in connection with incidents at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, and Wycombe General Hospital, High Wycombe, between September 2005 and August 2018.

Qureshi appeared before High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on 13th September and the case was referred to Aylesbury Crown Court with an appearance due on 14th October.

In a statement, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs the hospitals, said: "We can confirm that Salman Qureshi is no longer employed by the Trust. However as this case is subject to a police investigation, it would be inappropriate for us to make any further comment at this stage. The safety of our staff and patients is our number one priority and we are giving the police our full cooperation."
