A leading consultant is expected in court today accused of using hidden equipment to spy on patients in hospital toilets.

World-renowned hearing specialist Dr Lam Hoe Yeoh allegedly secretly recorded intimate images of patients, colleagues and visitors using secret cameras he rigged up.

Men, women and children are understood to have been caught in the clips.

He is expected to appear at Croydon Crown Court this morning.

The 62-year-old, who is also known by the first name Robin, was arrested at the privately-run St Anthony’s Hospital in North Cheam, Surrey, in April this year after an alleged victim contacted police.

The Metropolitan Police said he was charged with five counts of voyeurism involving 30 identified victims and one count of voyeurism covering 1,084 unidentified victims.

He was charged with six counts of making an indecent image of a child – three identified victims and three unidentified victims.

The father-of-three, of Banstead in Surrey, was also charged with one count of possessing 12 still images of extreme pornography, police said.

In addition, on September 25, Yeoh and his wife, Ivy Muihong Sng, 57, also of Garratts Lane, Banstead, were charged jointly with a single count of voyeurism.

All the charges relate to the period January 1, 2011 to April 15, 2014.
