A gay doctor who lied to his NHS employers about HIV-status had his suspended 2-year term handed, it has been confirmed. Tamas Nyary, 45, falsified documents to hide his status because of the conservative views in his native Hungary. He submitted his own blood under the name of one of his patients in order to apply for a job. Nyary worked at 24 hospitals in the UK and performed operations on hundreds of patients, Nottingham Crown Court heard, and was forced to contact nearly 400 of his patients to offer them a blood test. Luckily, they were all confirmed negative, but the stress and anxiety they experienced because of the doctor’s lie cannot be taken back. As Judge Stuart Rafferty QC sentenced him today, he acknowledged that the “draconian society” that he is originally from meant that he was “too embarrassed” to tell the truth. The now-suspended doctor admitted committing forgery and using a false instrument [regarding the vaccination report]; causing a computer to perform a function to secure unauthorized access to a program or data twice; fraud; and twice using a false instrument.
