A Doctor has been disqualified from practicing in Britain after a woman was left 'fighting for her life' after an abortion in Ealing.

Details have only just emerged about the 2006 case in which the unidentified woman who had travelled to Ealing from Ireland had to be taken to hospital with a perforated uterus following the procedure.

Dr Phanuel Dartey - originally from Ghana - has been struck off by the General Medical council over his treatment of five patients - one of whom was at at the Marie Stopes International Clinic in Ealing.

Tracey McNeill, Vice President and UK and Europe Director of Marie Stopes International, said:

''This was an isolated incident that happened over five years ago and Marie Stopes International suspended Dr Phanuel Dartey as soon as it occurred.

''Marie Stopes International screens all of our staff not only when they join us but on a regular basis. There is a comprehensive list of requirements that they must fulfil before they are employed by us including the provision of original certificates for clinical qualifications and medical indemnity insurance.

She said that Dr Phanuel Dartey had forged his documentation and that “his dishonesty and misconduct are unacceptable”.

The woman had to be rushed to hospital on her return to Ireland and was in a critical condition for two months before eventually recovering.
