NHS Psychiatrist in the UK sacked for recommending TB Joshua's Emmanuel TV to patient

A NHS psychiatrist in the UK Dr Julius Awakame, 50, has been sacked after he advised a patient to get help from TB Joshua's 24-hour church TV channel, Emmanuel TV because she might be possessed by demonic 'special forces'. 

According to UK Daily Mail, Dr Julius recorded medical notes diagnosing the woman as having a history of 'satanic ritual abuse' and said her issues could not be addressed by regular treatment. 
So instead he told her to watch Emmanuel TV, adding: 'neither psychiatry not psychology would be able to help because there are special forces at play.'
 
The woman - known as Patient A - claimed Awakame also told her to get 'nice holy water' before 'switching off' during the consultation at a health centre in Harwich, Essex.

When community psychiatric nurse Martin Rowe later quizzed Awkame whether she she was possessed, the medic replied: 'She may well be' and claimed she had been thrown out of her local church due to her condition.

The doctor's employment with the North Essex Partnership Foundation Trust was terminated the following month.

Today Awkame - who has since returned to his native Ghana - faced being struck off after he was found guilty in his absence at a medical tribunal of a number of misconduct charges.

The consultation took place on January 23 2014 when Awakame was treating the vulnerable woman as an outpatient.

The hearing, in Manchester, was told he was made aware she had a 'Dissociative Identity' - a personality disorder - and a 'history of previous satanic ritual abuse' before making a record of it in his notes.

But Awakame, formerly of Ipswich, then told Patient A she had been 'initiated through satanic ritual' and wrote down a website address for her to access.

He told her the TV station was 'specifically targeted for people who experienced similar situations.'
And he said her problems 'could only be addressed by the church' before he wrote down the name and suggested she write a book about her experiences. 
 
He also told Patient A he had watched the TV station and said there were 'many people who had similar problems' to her.
The patient further claimed Awakame told her to ask the church to send her some 'nice holy water' to help with her problems. She later spoke to Mr Rowe about the encounter and the nurse quizzed Awakame.
When the nurse told Awakame that Patient A thought she might be 'possessed' he replied: 'She may well be.' 

The doctor also said he 'studied' the TV station 'for hours' and said the woman's church had recognised she was possessed and had thrown her out.
Speaking of her emotional state following the meeting, Patient A said: 'I had pretty much switched off after hearing Dr Awakame tell me that no psychiatrist or psychologist could help me as throughout my childhood my parents had told me that no one would believe me and no one would help me'.

Awakame was reported to a consultant psychiatrist at the Trust by Mr Rowe the day after the consultation. 
Following an investigation he was subsequently sacked and referred to the General Medical Council.

Awakame, who worked in various hospitals in the NHS from 1997 to 2014, will be disciplined next month by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service. 
He is currently working as a lecturer in 'health informatics' in his home country where he graduated in medicine in 1993

Instead of concentrating with his medical ethics/ career requirements , he's taking religious directives to the extreme at the risk of hit professional career. Countless times I've been stopped RUDELY by mostly Nigerians in the UK in public places asking me if ' I have accepted Jesus' .

He should stop using the hospital to market his church jare. I greez everything cannot be explained. He should go and open a shrine then.

Nneka Nwabuzor said...

God will get u out of these mess, u did what was best for the patient instead she rubbished you, that church would have been her breakthrough, but the thing in her made her feel otherwise..... If she's been having that problem since childhood and her parents n church believes she cant be helped, what makes people think her case is medical. The only problem I c is dat Dr would,nt have written it down in her case file 📁, he would have advised her verbally.....any ways THE BEST IS YET TO COME DR! in your LIFE

udeh martha said...

He was just trying to help her so why all dis blames?

Anonymous said...

If everyone was like this man then there would be no scientific progress...Everyone would be looking for a distant God to solve our problems. We would turn into mindless zombie led by pure dogma and not reason.. I'm not surprised actually, just look at the way Nigerians have no opinion on anything but always say "God will help us" or "God dey" as if it is a license to do nothing. If this was a life-threatening case She would have died while waiting for a miracle and he would have simply said "God gives and God takes" Just ask yourself why the most religious countries are also the poorest...Oh I forgot you don't think for yourself. #Religionsucks

Oga you are working in an hospital not a church. They employed you cos you are a Doctor not because you are pastor. You can apply to Emmanuel tv since you like recommending holy water n stuff.

I BELIEVE IF IT WAS OTHER PROPHETS AND MEN OF GOD LIKE (ONYAKELOME, OYEDEPO, TDJAKES N CO.) HE RECOMEMDED THIS INSULT WONT HAVE RESULTED TO THESE .... THE MAN IS A CHRISTIAN AND BELIEVES IN THE WORK OF GOD I RESPECTS HIM. .... IF IT WAS ME I WOULD HAVE USED THE MORNING WATER TO CHASE OUT THE DEMON FROM THE PATIENT.
