NHS scientist suspended for telling women to work out to improve sex

NHS scientist is suspended after telling female colleagues to work out to improve their sex lives and then claiming he had been forced to resign because he is black

  • Collins Esona told a woman ‘you should work out, it will be good for your sex life’
  • The biomedical scientist complimented her and told her ‘I like to watch you work’
  • He also told another colleague ‘get pregnant, because pregnant women like me’
  • He was haematology staff at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital

Collins Esona, who worked testing blood, told one ‘you should work out, it will be good for your sex life’, ‘get pregnant, you would look nice pregnant’

An NHS scientist has been suspended after he tried to give female colleagues tips about their sex lives and told them to ‘get pregnant’.

Collins Esona, who worked testing blood, told one ‘you should work out, it will be good for your sex life’, ‘get pregnant, you would look nice pregnant’.

The biomedical scientist complimented her body, her looks and her eyes and told her ‘I like to watch you work’.

He told another colleague ‘get pregnant, because pregnant women like me’ and she should see where it went with him because he was single.

After being suspended for his inappropriate comments, Mr Esona set up a GoFundMe page claiming he had been forced to resign from the NHS because of a ‘toxic’ environment as a result of his race.

The Health and Care Professions Tribunal heard he also authorised blood test results which he was not allowed to do without supervision.

The haematology lab worker at Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust failed to follow standard operating procedures when authorising blood test results which caused a loss of time in the treatment of an unwell patient.

The NHS trust launched an investigation and told Mr Esona he had a case to answer to for the bullying allegations.

But Mr Esona resigned before the NHS trust could arrange a disciplinary hearing with him.

During a tribunal hearing, Mr Esona claimed the women conspired to damage his career and to get rid of him.

A tribunal report said: ‘Mr Esona’s evidence was underpinned by a feeling of unwarranted superiority and he appeared to show arrogance about his own capabilities.’

The Health and Care Professions Tribunal panel found his fitness to practise to be impaired and suspended him for a year.

About three weeks after being suspended, in December 2020, Mr Esona set up a GoFundMe page seeking money for himself and claiming he had been forced to resign from the NHS due to ‘a toxic environment as a result of his race.’

Now, after a review hearing of Mr Esona’s conduct, the panel decided to extend his suspension a further year.

It ruled: ‘The Panel is in no doubt that Mr Esona’s fitness to practise remains impaired.

‘He has shown little understanding of the impact of his actions on his former colleagues and the wider profession.’
