A Blackpool GP will appear before an employment tribunal accused of sexual misconduct towards a vulnerable female patient.

Dr Goskel Celikkol, who worked across the Fylde coast including at Grange Park Health Centre, is accused of carrying out an unnecessary examination on a woman, known only as Patient A, which was sexually motivated, in October 1999.

Following this, it is alleged the doctor embarked upon a sexual relationship with the vulnerable woman and prescribed her medication between October 1999 and August 2000.

It is further alleged that Dr Celikkol continued to prescribe inappropriate medication to the woman after their relationship had ended.

This is alleged to have continued until 2007.

On Thursday (September 16), Dr Celikkol will appear at Manchester’s Tribunal Court in Oxford Street, Manchester.

If the case against him is proved, the doctor, who trained in Istanbul before registering with the GMC in 1980, faces being struck off.
