Jailed Doctor Struck Off After Secretly Filming Over 1,000 Patients

Specialist Abuse Lawyers Call For Improvements To Protect Vulnerable Patients


Expert abuse lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have called for a thorough investigation and the implementation of new processes to ensure doctors are unable to use their position of trust to commit sexual offences against vulnerable patients.

Lam Hoe Yeoh was jailed for five years in November 2014 after filming more than 1,000 victims over three years at a number of medical facilities, including Portland Hospital in central London, and hospitals and clinics in Exeter, Sutton, Nottingham and Thames Ditton.

The incidents, which were filmed on a hidden camera placed in bathrooms by the hearing specialist, took place between January 2011 and April 2014.

The 62-year-old doctor from Banstead has now been struck off by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel after admitting seven counts of voyeurism and six counts of making indecent photographs of a child.
