Psychiatrist misled girl



A child sex abuse expert has criticised a psychiatrist who is accused of leading a 13-year-old patient to believe she was sexually abused. Professor Harry Zeitlin said at a hearing that Dr John Eastgate should not have prompted the girl with “leading questions”. The professor told the General Medical Council in London this line of questioning could have led the girl to believe she was a “victim”.
