Dr Harsit Tejura has been suspended for six months by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service

A married doctor who wrote fake prescriptions to get free Viagra while having an affair has been suspended.

Gynaecologist Dr Harsit Tejura, 51, got 30 packs saving £360.

A pharmacy manager alerted police after becoming suspicious about Tejura’s frequent visits.

Officers found he had stolen the anaesthetic fentanyl and another controlled drug when they raided the consultant’s office at the Centre for Reproduction and Gynaecology Wales in Llantrisant, South Wales.

The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service has now suspended him for six months after finding that his fitness to practise was impaired by his actions.

It came after Tejura, of Old St Mellons, Cardiff, admitted fraud by false representation and theft at the city’s crown court last year and was fined £1,000.

He could have legally bought Viagra but “not in the same quantity” the court heard.

Prosecutor Rosamund Rutter said: “He said he was experiencing from high levels of stress due to his home and personal life and suffered erectile dysfunction as a consequence.

“He admitted engaging in additional-marital sex at the time.”
