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.

A Royal Cornwall Hospitals trust spokesman said: “Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust is taking this allegation by the complainant very seriously and reported the concerns about a former employee immediately to the appropriate authorities. We will continue to work with the Nursing and Midwifery Council on any further investigation.”
