A psychologist was ordered to undergo “courtesy and respect” training after criticizing a minister in front of a patient.
The North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT) has upheld a complaint by patient Colin Aylward after forensic psychologist Mark Borden made comments about Sajid Javid MP.
When Aylward later reported his concerns to the trust, officials responded by calling the minister “Sajd Patel.”
Doctors and patients spotted the then-Health Secretary through a window in March during an official visit to Barking Hospital.
When asked by Mr. Isleward if the man was Mr. Javid, Dr. Boden replied that it was, then added, “You can tell by the stupid way he waves his hand.”
He then observed that Mr. Javid appeared to be “whiter.”
Mr Isleward, from Dagenham, had evidence of what he said, as he had recorded a therapy session with Dr. Borden.
When he complained to NELFT, the manager replied:

“This particular incident has been shared with our Chief of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. did.
“Individuals were required to participate in training respecting civility promoted within the trust to address inappropriate comments.”
Dr. Borden has since moved to South London and Moseley NHS Trust (SLAM).
Asked if that or Dr. Borden wanted to comment, the Trust’s public affairs department said:
“Our values and behavioral framework sets out the behaviors we want to see in each other and the behaviors that people who use our services and their caregivers expect from us.”
Javid’s parliamentary office was repeatedly asked for comment.
