October 20, 2017

Dr. Ovais Badat, a top UK psychiatrist, has been jailed for two and a half years after inviting a female patient to his hotel room where he gave her champagne and drugs, including cocaine.  

He  denied wrongdoing but was convicted of one count of supplying a controlled drug, one count of fraudulently making false prescriptions, one count of fraud and one count of possessing ketamine.

Detective Inspector Simon Brickwood said that Badat "is a predatory drug addict who supplied cocaine to a vulnerable woman and made out false prescriptions which he used to illegally obtain medication from a pharmacy in Hengrove. His actions were wholly dishonest and a significant breach of trust."
