Jealous hospital gynaecologist stalked his ex-lover and sent photos and explicit details of her sex life to her former partner, tribunal hears
- Dr Gary Lucitt left his former partner ‘terrified’ after embarking on campaign
A jealous doctor faces being struck off after allegedly sending naked photos of his ex-lover to her former partner – with lurid details of her alleged sex life.
Dr Gary Lucitt repeatedly stalked the woman, turning up outside her home and leaving her ‘terrified’ after she ended the 18-month relationship.
The gynaecologist, who worked at Singleton Hospital in Swansea, was jailed for terrorising his former partner – named in documents as Miss E – after meeting her on dating site Tinder.
But Lucitt, 44, now also faces being struck off from the General Medical Council (GMC) register – meaning he would no longer be able to practise medicine in the UK.
A fitness to practise hearing was told he was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison in August 2019, after pleading guilty to stalking without alarm or distress between May and June 2018.

Evidence from the doctor’s court case, read out as part of the hearing, detailed how Lucitt had begun seeing the woman after his eight-year marriage ended.
Alan Taylor, representing the GMC, told the tribunal that Lucitt had undermined confidence in the medical profession.
He said Lucitt had sent a letter to the woman’s ex-boyfriend containing photos of her in bed, and explicit claims about her sex life.
Lucitt reportedly signed the letter as a senior gynaecologist despite then being a trainee – and claimed his former lover was also taking drugs.
Miss E contacted the police and Lucitt was then arrested, the tribunal heard, but after the doctor was bailed the woman began receiving anonymous messages, including one that read: ‘I hope you realise your life is going to get a whole lot worse.’
Mr Taylor told the hearing Miss E was at the beach when Lucitt drove past her and ‘raised a hand and dragged it across his throat’.
The doctor also turned up outside her house twice, despite it being against his bail conditions.
When he was interviewed by police Lucitt described the allegation of stalking as ‘ridiculous’. He claimed he had been driving past Miss E’s house to go to walk his dog.
In a victim impact statement read out at the GMC hearing, Miss E said she was ‘at times terrified’ and had become too scared to be alone in her own home as she feared Lucitt would appear at the window.
She said that while she did not think Lucitt would become violent, she wondered what he was capable of, adding that the stalking had caused her to lose weight and left her feeling paranoid.
Mr Taylor said Lucitt – who did not attend the two-day virtual hearing and was not represented – had not demonstrated any remorse.
He said Lucitt had continued to indicate that others were to blame for what had happened in correspondence sent to the GMC.
Mr Taylor said concerns were raised with the GMC about Lucitt’s fitness to practise in 2018, by the executive medical director for NHS Wales after a complaint about the malicious letter.
Lucitt, of Llanelli, was working as a £40,000-a-year trainee obstetrician and gynaecologist, at the Swansea hospital but was later suspended. He faces being struck off the medical register.
The GMC hearing in Manchester is expected to last three days and is continuing.
