A Dundee doctor is to face a hearing next month over an allegation of inappropriately touching a woman.
Dr Ross McCord is accused of touching a woman referred to as “Miss A” on three occasions between January 21 and mid-May last year.
He is alleged to have made the contact without her consent and to have ignored her requests for him to stop.
It is further alleged Dr McCord’s actions were sexually motivated.
It is understood the woman involved in the allegation was not a patient.
He will appear at a hearing of the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS), due to take place from December 10 in Manchester.
Dr McCord studied at Dundee University and graduated with a medical degree last year.
His area of practice is given as Dundee in a notice of the allegation.
He provisionally registered with the General Medical Council on July 20 last year and achieved his full registration on August 1 this year.
According to the regulator’s website, he is undertaking the NHS Education for Scotland Foundation Programme.
The MPTS runs hearings which make decisions independently about whether a doctor is fit to practise medicine.
If required, its tribunals can lead to a restriction or removal of a doctor’s right to practise within the UK.
It works independently from the GMC’s investigatory role, however it is a statutory committee of the GMC.
A spokeswoman for NHS Tayside said: “We are unable to comment on matters relating to any individual member of staff.”
The Evening Telegraph was unable to reach Dr McCord for comment before going to press.
