A DOCTOR is set to face a medical watchdog amid allegations over a confrontation with the police.

Dr Oladjide Ogunjimi has previously been involved in an aborted race discrimination case involving Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.

But the most recent claims revolve around an incident on June 7 last year, according to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service.

He is alleged to have been unco-operative with police officers, "in that he refused to end a telephone call when asked and refused to allow them to apply handcuffs to both of his hands".

It is further alleged by the General Medical Council that he pulled on one of the officer's fingers, during the same incident.

Dr Ogunjimi will face a fitness to practice hearing in Manchester, which is scheduled to start on Monday and last until December 4.

His dispute with the Bolton and Pennine trusts centred on his time as a speciality trainee, looking to become a specialist registrar, between 2016 and 2017.

The doctor had made race discrimination and victimisation claims against two named doctors, and accused two other senior doctors of failing to act when he raised concerns.

An employment tribunal in February 2018 dismissed his victimisation and whistleblowing claims and ordeed the cases against the two senior doctors be dropped.

He had also argued that his £34,000 salary should have been closer to £46,000, as a speciality doctor. But permission to add this claim was also rejected by Judge Kenderik Horne.

The remainder of the claims were withdrawn by Dr Ogunjimi earlier this year, it was confirmed.
