'Frisky' Medical Students Caught in Sex Act at Hospital

Two Medical students at the University of Southampton have been caught on CCTV performing a sex act in a hospital. The couple, who are yet to be identified, were found by a member of the clinical skills team in an education block at Southampton General Hospital. The event promoted an e-mail to be sent to all medical students by a senior academic at the university asking them to ‘find a more comfortable place that is out of public view and off NHS property’ if they ‘want to perform oral sex on each other.’ Director of Education of the University, Dr Chris Stephens, stated in his e-mail: ‘a couple of second year students (male and female) were getting a bit frisky on the sofas outside the lecture theatre at Southampton General Hospital last week. It caused offence to one of the female clinical skills team.’ He added, ‘you need to remember you are in a hospital and need to act in a professional manner, including your language and behaviour. Most of the area is covered by CCTV cameras.’ Dean of the University of Southampton's Faculty of Medicine, Professor Iain Cameron, said in a statement: ‘we take any allegations of student misconduct seriously and are currently investigating the allegations, as the couple were not identified. ‘They were seen in a publicly-accessible location where medical students were timetabled in and the person who reported the incident couldn't confirm their identities. ‘We expect our students to act in a professional manner and we remind them of their responsibility to abide by university rules regarding student behaviour.’ The incident took place in the academic block, and not in a clinical area where patients are treated. A spokesman for the hospital said they were not aware of the incident and added that the area was away from the public.
