BREAKING: George Osborne’s Brother Adam Osborne Struck Off Medical Register For Affair With Patient Who Had Chronic Fatigue

February 11, 2016

Psychiatrist Adam Osborne has been struck off the medical register after having a two-year affair with a vulnerable patient.

It follows a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service ruling that his fitness to practise had been impaired.

The married 39-year-old, who is the brother of Chancellor George Osborne, had admitted an inappropriate relationship with a patient.

The tribunal ruled his behaviour was “profoundly unacceptable”.

Suicide attempt

Mr Osborne had been treating the woman, described as Patient A, for depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue at his private clinic in London between 2011 and 2014.

She also had problems with substance abuse and self-harm.

He ended the two-year affair by email in February last year but after Patient A reported him to the General Medical Council he sent her a “number of inappropriate emails”, the tone of which grew more threatening, the tribunal was told.

He did not attend the four-day disciplinary hearing in Manchester, which heard how the woman had tried to take her own life two days after he broke off the relationship.

Dr Nigel Callaghan, the tribunal chairman, said Mr Osborne’s behaviour “undermines the public’s confidence in the medical profession”.

    “Undermines public confidence” must be a family trait.
