A doctor who tried to start an affair with his patient’s wife after he admitted his marriage was in crisis has been struck off.GP William Arnett, 41, sent flirtatious text messages to the woman and met her in a pub after her husband broke down in a medical consultation and said working away from home was having a difficult impact on his family life.The woman – known as Patient A – initially deleted the messages for fear her husband would find them but when she herself went to see Arnett for a breast examination at his surgery, the doctor kissed her and later texted saying: “I like your breasts just the way they are.”They subsequently went on a date to a pub and Arnett kissed her after leaning into her car.

The practice in Sunderland Dr McCormack said Patient A was a “credible, truthful and reliable witness who gave an articulate unambiguous account which remained consistent and detailed over time”.Both the woman and her husband had both been patients at Arnett’s Roker Family Practice in Sunderland, since 2012 where they would all engage in “friendly banter”. But the difficulties began in October 2014 when the husband went to the GP for treatment for an undisclosed illness and when asked about his home life, he broke down and said his marriage was in crisis.Arnett gave the husband the contact numbers for counselling services but later in July 2015 unexpectedly began sending flirtatious texts to the patient’s wife, the first regarding her missing an appointment and reading: “home visits cost more lol”.Dr McCormack added: “The Tribunal concluded, on balance, that Dr Arnett was using his professional opinion to pursue an emotional relationship with Patient A and that this was improper as doctors are expected to maintain professional boundaries with their patients.” The unnamed husband found when he used an iPhone location system to confirm his wife’s whereabouts and interrogated her. The man reported him to the General Medical Council saying: “My marriage was not in a great place before this but the guy I turned to for help was the guy who screwed me over”.At the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester, a disciplinary panel found a series of misconduct charges proved against Arnett.Panel chairman Dr Helen McCormack said: “Dr Arnett exploited Patient A’s vulnerability in order to pursue a sexual and emotional relationship with her.”She added: “There remains a risk of repetition and a risk of harm to patients.”
