A hospital doctor who tried to entice two young girls into his car is set to be struck off.
A tribunal decided that Leslie Black Mitchell's fitness to practise was "impaired" after he approached the ten and 11-year-old girls.
The doctor, who worked in the A&E department of Stirling Royal Infirmary, has already been jailed and placed on the sex offenders register for life after appearing in court and admitting a breach of the peace.
In January 2010, the doctor asked the girls if he could tickle their legs after he approached them at a bus stop in Caronshore, near Falkirk.
In April the same year, a sheriff branded him a danger to children, and when his case came before the High Court in Edinburgh he was given an order of lifelong restriction, which means he will be supervised for life.
Mitchell, 59, now faces being barred from the medical profession at a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) hearing.
On Monday he admitted his "fitness to practise" was impaired because of his conviction.
The hearing in Manchester is scheduled to last until the end of the week. Mitchell is not present at the hearing but is represented by his solicitor.
Mitchell, from Falkirk, admitted engaging in similar behaviour as far back as the 1990s and trying to groom children for sex online since 2000, but he was not caught until 2010.
In January 2010 he approached the two children and said they were "beautiful and attractive" and asked if he could tickle their legs.
One of the girls told her parents about the incident, and the police were contacted.
The doctor admitted a breach of the peace at Falkirk Sheriff Court, though his case was transferred to the High Court in Edinburgh because of its greater sentencing powers.
