Doc tried to trade drugs for sex with addicts

The doctor, working as a general practiotioner, had been under investigation by the National Board on Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) for sending inappropriate text messages and images to women with a history of drug abuse.

But according to local paper Norrbottenskuriren, the investigation, which had been allowed to drag out, missed one of the most crucial details – that the man had not just sent very graphic sexual text messages but also tried to purchase sexual favours with drugs.

According to the paper, the man had repeatedly offered drugs for “together-time...cozyness...licking and sucking...perhaps more”.

He also had texted one of the women that “If you don't want to...that's OK with me...but the there's not going to be any painkillers either,” according to the paper.

When he didn't receive an answer, the doctor wrote: “What I want to know is...are you interested in this deal or not?”

Next time the doctor contacted the woman he offered the women the narcotics classed substances Trampoline and Oxacand and wrote; “Perhaps there is some kind of Benzo you want? Sobril? Stesolid?”.

According to the paper, he then offered to pay a woman if he could take pictures of her and also sent an email with another offer where he clearly states what drugs the women might be interested in.

Despite being found out, the man was allowed to continue practising medicine while the investigation was carried out against him, according to Norrbottenskuriren.

Leaving his position at the clinic in Norrbotten, the man went straight to working for two temping agencies and then secured a new position at a clinic in neighbouring county Västerbotten.

Story continues below…

The doctor's new employer had reportedly expressed his “complete faith” in him, but after the paper published the contents of his text messages, the Västerbotten clinic decided to dismiss him on Friday.

“Considering the new information his employment was terminated today,” said Leif Persson, head of heath care at the Västerbotten County Council to Norrbottenskuriren.
