A doctor engaged in sexual activities with multiple women at his GP practice and lied about his family members being ill in an effort to ‘juggle’ his multiple girlfriends, a tribunal was told.
Tom Plimmer, 40, has been hit with allegations from at least half a dozen women, including a ‘vulnerable’ colleague who claims he forced her into weekly sex sessions at his GP practice in Swindon, Wilts, The Sun reported.
He went on to invite two women he met on dating sites to the surgery and engaged in sex acts with them during working hours, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal heard.
Plimmer has been accused of sending unsolicited pictures of his genitals that were ‘taken at work’ to another woman he met on a dating site. The tribunal heard for he allegedly threatened another woman, saying that he knew ‘where she lives’ and if the ‘c*** takes me to the GMC, I’ll slit her throat’.
It is also alleged that Plimmer lied that his mother and brother were ill so he could avoid seeing one woman and see another instead.

Plimmer’s relationship with his colleague began with an ‘innuendo about a chocolate rabbit’, the tribunal, held by video conference, heard.
Then, in May 2018, the Cambridge-educated medic ‘without warning’ showed her a video of him having sex with another woman, Mark Monaghan, presenting the case on behalf of the General Medical Council, said.
He then allegedly tried to ‘kiss’ and ‘touch’ her, with Mr Monaghan claiming Plimmer would ‘come into her room with his trousers undone and flirt with her’ despite her refusing his advances.
Mr Monaghan argued that Plimmer knew the colleague was ‘vulnerable’ and exhibited an ‘abuse of his position’.
It was further claimed that the woman walked in on Plimmer performing sex acts in his consulting room on multiple occasions. The tribunal also heard that he would frequently send her explicit videos, which he admits.
In another instance, when the woman was ‘clearly distressed’, Plimmer put his ‘arm around her’ and led her into his consulting room to ‘cheer her up’. He then placed his hands on her genitals, the tribunal was told.
There was sexual behaviour with the colleague on a ‘weekly basis’ but Plimmer insists it was ‘always consensual’. The woman allegedly was fearful to report the situation and worried she would be blamed.
Plimmer met another woman on a dating app on New Year’s Eve 2019 and brought her to the consulting room at his practice of January 3. The tribunal heard that he made a mug of tea, locked the door and she performed a sex act on him.
Mr Monaghan argued that she was ‘uncomfortable’ because she could ‘hear people walk past’.
The tribunal was also told that he met another woman online, identified as Miss C, in May 2018. The pair went to the tennis at Wimbledon and he even met her parents.
He then started ‘making excuses’ to avoid seeing her, including that his mother had suffered ‘several serious strokes’ and needed to be in a rehab facility.
‘These excuses were deliberate lies to allow him to juggle and see other women instead,’ Mr Monaghan argued.

In May 2020, after the pair had been together for two years, she is understood to have become concerned by his distant behaviour. He invited her to his practice and they had sex during working hours, it was claimed.
Plimmer allegedly continued to be ‘attentive from a distance’ but had already been living with another woman, Miss D, whom he had met in January 2019.
He cancelled several of his first dates with Miss D, claiming he had a sick brother in hospital. He even sent photos and ‘play by play’ updates on his brother’s alleged conditions, despite the story being ‘wholly fabricated’, the tribunal heard.
A fifth woman, whom he also met on a dating site in 2021, claimed he would send her photos of his genitally that were taken at work. And a sixth woman has alleged that he threatened to cut her throat.
The tribunal continues.
