Nayef El-Barghouty: Not to practice medicine again

    1. Sharon Pickup
    2. Petition by

      Sharon Pickup

      York, United Kingdom

This group has been put together to protest against the return of this incompetent surgeon practicing in our NHS again.


The surgeon Mr El-Barghouty had worked as a vascular and general surgeon at Scarborough Hospital for 15 years, before being sacked in August 2011.

In 2006, we, the pickup family lost our fabulous dad after recieving surgery from this surgeon, resulting in a facial artery been cut, this caused asphyxiation in recovery causing brain damage and death.  Although there was clear evidence of this mistake during surgery, the case was dropped because the surgeon was seen to be competent by a specialist allowing the surgeon to carry on practicing, later to cause the death of Mr Taylor and the severe damage to Mrs Roches' vocal chords.

Mr Taylor died after undergoing three operations in one day to remove an aneurysm in his leg. The operations were made necessary due to mistakes made by the surgeon.

Also it emerged Mr El-Barghouty had lied under oath about the size of the aneurysm during the inquest into Mr Taylor’s death.

A second patient, Joanne Roche, 42, from Bridlington, was left with damaged vocal chords after having her thyroid gland removed by Mr El-Barghouty in 2008.

We need to stop this monster from praciticing in our NHS hospitals again..

      No patient is safe while he is still practicing.

      My father suffered at his incompetent hands. He went in for a straight forward operation which went badly wrong, and ended up in ITU and over 3 months in hospital. We also witnessed his appalling treatment of other patients whilst visiting daily for 12 weeks. This man should never be allowed to practice surgery again.

      His errors and negligence nearly killed my father and have left him with permanant damage. He was taking fees as a private consultant, carried out an operation that he was not capable of doing, botched it and then the NHS had to provide the intensive care treatment needed to save my father's life.

      I went as a private patient to Mr El-Barghouty for an overnight stay for the removal of a gall bladder. I was assessed as fit and healthy. An overnight stay became eight weeks with two in intensive care. Relations told I would probably "not pull through". The surgeon botched two operations and I developed peritonitis. I still have not fully recovered and have a vast hernia. No apology and told I would be going ho,me when I was very ill before being rushed to theatre for the second time. The nursing care was negligent also.

      This surgeon should never practice again. I believe the Head of Surgery and the CEO at the time should be held to account over the succession of dishonest blunders of this surgeon.
