2 Respected neurosurgeon jailed for sexually assaulting female patients A disgraced neurosurgeon convicted of multiple sex offences against vulnerable female patients has been jailed for 16 years. Nafees Hamid had earlier been found guilty of nine sex assaults against six women between 2012 and 2013, after a lengthy trial at Birmingham Crown Court. The 51-year-old was cleared by the jury of further counts of sexual assault relating to four other women. The offences were all carried out by Hamid, a highly regarded and award-winning specialist neurosurgeon, at the city's Queen Elizabeth and Priory Hospitals. Passing sentence, Judge Patrick Thomas QC told Hamid: "You are without question in my experience the most intelligent man I have ever seen in the dock of a criminal court. "You, through hard work and devotion to your course of studies, rose high within your profession to become an enormously respected consultant neurosurgeon at one of the great hospitals in our region." The judge said everybody in Hamid's trial had spoken highly of his clinical skills, but added: "You were brought low by a simple failing - lust. "And you exercised your lust as a result of arrogance. You liked doing what you did, touching sexually your female patients, and you took the opportunity to do it because you could." The judge added of the offences: "This is the most extreme breach of trust. "These ladies went to see you because they had significant problems and they thought - with your skills, abilities and experience - you were the person who could help them with the medical problems. "Instead you grossly abused them." A two-month trial heard that Hamid, of Russell Road, Moseley, Birmingham, committed the offences by indecently touching patients, some of whom were questioned about their sex lives during intimate examinations. Two of the six victims were assaulted on more than one occasion, while four of them were subjected to attacks lasting several minutes. Hamid denied a total of 15 charges relating to women aged between mid-20s and mid-60s, claiming legitimate examinations had been misconstrued. Judge Thomas, who heard that Hamid will now be struck off, ordered the "enormously gifted" surgeon to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Pointing out the high level of psychological harm caused to the six victims, the judge told the married father of three: "In every case the impact has been extreme and severe and, potentially at least, life- changing." During the sentencing, Hamid showed no emotion and nodded in the direction of the judge as he was ordered to be taken to the cells. Q UESTION No 1. Yes Is the story about a particular woman or group of women? This story is about the sentencing of Dr. Hamid having been found guilty of nine sex assaults against his female patients between 2012 and The group of women assaulted by Hamid are central in this story. The women are described as “victims” “aged between mid- 20s and mid-60s”. Code 1. Yes

Agree To what extent do you agree with the following statement: “This story clearly highlights issues of inequality between women and men” 4. Do not know, cannot decide While the judge’s words highlight the unequal power positions that created the conditions for a neurosurgeon to sexually assault his female patients, the story is not framed as an issue of inequality between women and men. We disagree with the statement that “the story clearly highlights issues of inequality between women and men”. Code 2 3. Neither agree nor disagree

During the sentencing, Hamid showed no emotion and nodded in the direction of the judge as he was ordered to be taken to the cells. Q UESTION 23 To what extent do you agree with the following statement: “This story clearly challenges gender stereotypes.” Several descriptors of the women in the story portray them as docile, submissive and in need of rescuing from their doctor. The story provides no hint as to whether the women did anything to stop the assaults or their participation in the process to bring the doctor to book. The story describes Hamid as a “respected neurosurgeon”, as a “highly regarded and award-winning specialist surgeon” – his professional career is highlighted and contrasted with his present position as a sex offender. We disagree with the statement that “the story clearly challenges gender stereotypes”. Code 2 2. Disagree 1. Agree 4. Do not know, cannot decide 3. Neither agree nor disagree

No This story is remarkable in that it contains no views from women in a case centered on sexual assault of women. The patients cannot be named however they could have been quoted for this story. The doctor’s career is referenced several times despite his conviction for a heinous crime. The story would have been more complete had it included the perspectives of women, especially the women who survived the assault who we learn about only through the opinions of the judge and the journalist. This story would be interesting for further analysis. Code 1 Enter your comments in the space provided (Q. 20) if you coded ‘1’ here.
