A former nurse at Cornwall's biggest hospital is being investigated over claims he drugged and abused a patient.
David Fryer worked in the sexual health centre at Treliske.
The allegations have emerged in a report from the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
A patient claims he was assaulted on a number of appointments with David Fryer, saying during one he was given an injection and woke up in the nurse's accommodation, where he was then abused.
The patient has not made a police statement yet but the Royal Cornwall's been informed.
Mr Fryer, who now works in Derbyshire, denies the allegations.
Officials have put conditions on his practice for eighteen months while they investigate.
