Appearing at a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) hearing in Manchester, Dr Smith admitted committing an act of a sexually explicit nature, creating an electronic recording of it and then transmitting it to a third party.The GMC say his fitness to practise is impaired because of his misconduct.
The organisation said in a report today that in a very short period over 20,000 people approached ‘Sweetie’ and asked her to perform sexual acts on a webcam.
By asking these adults for information about their social media profiles the organisation was able to gather information about the people and uncover the identities of 1,000 of them.
This information has now been passed on to Interpol.
Of over 1,000 identified, three are reported to be Irish but their identities have not been disclosed.
Elizabeth Dudley-Jones, counsel for the General Medical Council (GMC), said police discovered the file on the hard drive of his personal laptop after practice bosses raised concerns about the incident on New Year's Eve 2010.
In the video Dr Smith is seen sitting at his surgery desk with the lights out, she said."Dr Smith is seen talking to a female on the webcam," she continued.
Kaye testified at his trial that he led a double life and frequently used the Internet to facilitate homosexual liaisons.
He said he knew the person he was chatting with was older than 13 and assumed he was an adult, but played along with what he assumed to be role playing.
"He refers to her by her first name."He said this was his new place of work and then turned round the webcam to show the room."He placed the webcam back on the surgery desk where he then appeared to remove his trousers."He continued to talk and then began to indulge in sexually explicit conversation, referring to his penis.
He ejaculates and then Dr Smith closes down the webcam."It is the GMC's case that Dr Smith's behaviour was indecent, inappropriate and was conduct that was likely to bring the medical profession into disrepute."A fitness to practise panel was told the doctor, who graduated from the University of Southampton, was sacked by fellow partners at the practice but no criminal charges were brought by Isle of Man police.
In a letter to the GMC, the practice's senior partner Malcom Guild said Dr Smith's clinical competence had never been called into question and there was no history of improper behaviour involving patients.
