A doctor who took his prescription pad to nightclubs and parties and prescribed steroids and tranquilisers to patients was “nothing more than a drug dealer”, the Medical Tribunal has found.

The practices of Kelvin Wong – who once described himself as the “bad boy doctor” – were reprehensible, the tribunal said.

It ordered that Dr Wong be struck off the medical register for at least 18 months, saying his conduct ”amounts to a complete abrogation of his responsibilities as a medical practitioner and demonstrates an abandonment of principle.

”He showed no concern or even a passing interest in the welfare of the patients who were taking the vast quantities of drugs he was prescribing. Indeed he was unconcerned whether they were taking the huge amounts of drugs or selling them.”

Dr Wong has appealed against the decision.

The Health Care Complaints Commission made numerous allegations against Dr Wong, including that he inappropriately prescribed restricted substances such as anabolic steroids and benzodiazepines, or tranquilisers.

Dr Wong had written prescriptions on demand from 2001 until 2006, giving patients “what they asked for, at the dose they requested and as often as they liked”, the tribunal said.

In 2004 he began taking his prescription pad out with him at night, writing scripts for friends at parties, it said. Later he took his pad to nightclubs to write prescriptions for regulars, saying some of his patients asked him to do it because people there would want drugs.

The tribunal said Dr Wong had been “nothing more than a drug dealer”, willing to “write prescriptions for all and sundry”.
