Surgeon faces sex assaults trial
A neurosurgeon is due to go on trial today accused of committing sexual offences against a number of his female patients.
Nafees Hamid, 50, has been charged by police with six sexual assaults and seven other offences of a serious sexual nature alleged to have happened between May 2009 and June last year.
Hamid, of Russell Road, Moseley, Birmingham, pleaded not guilty to a 13-count indictment during a plea hearing in May.
The surgeon, who worked for the University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, will stand trial before a jury at the city's Crown Court.
