Doctor At Centre Of Premier League Doping Scandal Reportedly Has Previous In Shady Practice

Doctor At Centre Of Premier League Doping Scandal Reportedly Has Previous In Shady Practice
By Gavan Casey Updated

As explained earlier, tomorrow will supposedly see the UK sporting world rocked by a Sunday Times doping reveal, with a doctor reportedly claiming to the paper that he has supplied over 150 athletes with banned substances - including Premier League footballers.

The doctor in question is Dr. Mark Bonar, who - according to a Daily Mail story in December of last year - kept a dying patient in the dark about her terminal cancer so he could continue charging her for 'unconventional' nutrition treatment.

It was alleged at a hearing in Manchester around this time that Bonar should have allowed the woman to undergo end-of-life care, but instead offered false hope of recovery via a form of potentially dangerous intravenous feeding.

Bonar charges £150 for 15-minute appointments, and it was alleged at this hearing that he told the American woman she was not eligible for NHS treatment.

When nurses discovered how critically ill the patient was, they attempted to treat her correctly, but she died two months later.

Charles Garside QC, Counsel for the General Medical Council at the time, said:

The reality of it is that she was badly ill and wasn't getting the treatment she needed.
Bonar vehemently denied these claims, but they're certainly worth bearing in mind when the Sunday Times break a story involving the Harley Street specialist tomorrow, which implicates Premier League footballers amongst others in a doping scandal.
For legal reasons, it's unlikely that any footballers or other athletes will be named, but brace yourself for an intense day of sports news tomorrow.
