HeadLine: Doc junkie hooker rap

A SCOTS doctor made a house-call to a junkie hooker’s Spanish hotel
room, an inquiry heard yesterday.
The GMC committee heard Edinburgh psychiatrist John Poncia jetted out
alone to deliver drugs to the heroin addict patient.
Poncia, 66, who worked at Harley Street in London at the time, denies
serious professional misconduct involving treatment of 17 patients in
the late 1990s.
Addiction expert Dr Jane Marshall said: “It was a highly dangerous
thing for a male doctor to visit a female patient in a hotel without a
chaperone.”
The hearing continues.
