NSW government launches probe into disgraced gynaecologist Emil Gayed

Rhian Deutrom (The Australian, 25/06/2018)

The NSW government has launched an independent inquiry into the work of disgraced gynaecologist, Emil Shawky Gayed, following findings by the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal that he had removed patient’s organs without consent and misdiagnosed others with life-threatening cancer during his time at a hospital on the Mid North Coast.

The inquiry, announced today, will examine complaints against Dr Gayed and the “subsequent action taken by each local health district” in which he worked from 1994 onwards.

Doctor Gayed worked as an obstetrician and gynaecologist at Cooma Hospital between 1994 and 1999, Kempsey District Hospital from 1990 to 2003, Mona Vale Hospital between 2002 and 2007 and Manning Base Hospital from 1999 to 2016.

A disgraced gynaecologist who was accused of misconduct against seven patients has prompted an independent review by New South Wales Health.

Dr Emil Gayed was banned from practicing medicine in New South Wales earlier this month after the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal found him guilty of misconduct while working at Manning Base Hospital in Taree.

NSW Health's Deputy Secretary, Dr Nigel Lyons, said more than 30 other complaints were made against Dr Gayed over the course of his 26-year career at four of the state's public hospitals.

'I still feel mutilated': victims of disgraced gynaecologist Emil Gayed speak out

Melissa Davey (The Guardian, 24/06/2018)

Rhiannon Tull knew one thing when she was pregnant with her first child. She did not want her gynaecologist to be Dr Emil Shawky Gayed. Gayed (pictured below) had a reputation in the regional town of Taree on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, where he worked as a visiting medical officer, consulting in his private rooms as an obstetrician and gynaecologist, and scheduling women in for surgery at the Manning Rural Referral public hospital.

“I know nurses who work at the hospital and they told me, ‘Do not see Gayed,’” Tull said. “I was told he’s OK if you deliver naturally, but not if you need to have surgery. I was told people come back with infections and complications and heaps of bad things happen. From then on I thought, ‘I do not want to encounter that man, ever.’”

But Tull wasn’t so lucky when she was pregnant with her second child three years ago. She was 27 and again needed an emergency caesarean section. Gayed was the obstetrician on duty.

NSW Health to probe shamed surgeon Emil Gayed and associated hospitals

Jenny Noyes (The Syndey Morning Herald, 25/06/2018)

The NSW health department has launched an inquiry into four NSW hospitals where patients were treated by disgraced gynaecologist Emil Gayed, after a tribunal found him guilty of professional misconduct.

Dr Gayed was banned from practicing medicine for three years by the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal this month.

He was found guilty of professional misconduct over his treatment of patients at Manning Base Hospital, where his employment was suspended in February 2016 following accusations he had performed unnecessary invasive procedures on female patients, including a hysterectomy, often without consent.
