A former GP charged with a string of historic sexual offences drugged his vulnerable teenage patient and dressed him in a leather mask before sexually assaulting the youngster with his architect boyfriend, a court has heard.
Former doctor Victor Calland, 61, allegedly gave the young man an injection before encouraging his former partner George Cameron, 63, to sexually assault him at the couple’s home.
The alleged victim – who had met the doctor in the early 1990s while he was a teenager – claims he blacked out and woke up wearing a leather mask.

He claims he was being sexually assaulted by Cameron, while Calland egged him on, the court was told.
Calland, from Preston, is also accused of allegedly sexually assaulting another man after plying him with whisky during the 1980s.
The former doctor, who practised from Fishergate Hill surgery in Preston, Lancashire, allegedly boasted he had ‘slept with patients before’ when confronted by one of his victims.
The two alleged victims cannot be identified for legal reasons.
During the opening of the trial, prosecutor Joe Boyd said: ‘Both men have given accounts that, although independent and in different timescales, resonate with each other.
‘Both came to know Dr Calland because they were vulnerable young men and he was a doctor.
Calland is also charged with three counts of sexual assaults and another charge of serious sexual assault
‘There will be evidence of the use of drugs and drink, firstly to stupify (one man) and later (the other). Stupify in order to gratify his sexual appetite.’
The first victim, who gave evidence by videolink at Preston Crown Court yesterday, said he was indecently assaulted by Calland in the 1980s during an examination at his home in South Ribble, Lancashire.
He said the doctor began to examine his genitals while carrying out an examination for a case of suspected appendicitis. The man told the court it ‘didn’t feel right’ but that he trusted the GP.
The following year, the man visited Calland’s home, having already drunk a large amount of alcohol.
The court heard that Cameron was away for the weekend and Calland began pouring whisky for the man.
But the man told the court that he lost his memory until the following morning, when he woke up naked in Calland’s bed.
He felt that he had been sexually assaulted but with no memory of the incident, the court was told.
The alleged victim described feeling ‘euphoric’, as if he had taken ecstasy, which he said confused him.
Mr Boyd told the court that the second man, who is yet to give evidence in court, met Calland after being thrown out of his family home as a teenager in the early 1990s.

The doctor had invited him into Calland and Cameron’s home as he sat on a bench nearby.
The youngster – aged 16 or 17 at the time – stayed for around a month until he was able to find accommodation of his own.
Mr Boyd told the court: ‘The previous evening Dr Calland had given the man an injection. He said it was as a precaution so that he wouldn’t catch anything.
‘When he woke up he was wearing a leather mask that someone had put on him and he was being raped by Cameron.
‘Calland was also naked, encouraging what was going on. He told Cameron to stop and he did. A few days later he got other accommodation.’
Mr Boyd said this alleged victim spoke to the police in 2003 but that he believed they were not particularly interested in his complaint.
But when another man came forward last year, investigating officers found a record of the man’s disclosures and contacted him.
Calland is appearing at Preston Crown Court (pictured) charged with three indecent assaults and two counts of serious sexual assault. His former partner George Cameron, 63, is jointly charged with one count of serious sexual assault
The prosecutor said that a trolley of sexual equipment, similar to the one described by the younger man, was found at Calland’s home.
Calland has been charged with three counts of indecent assault and two counts of serious sexual assault. He denies all charges.
In interview, the doctor told officers he ‘did not have it in him’ to indecently assault anyone as he was sexually submissive.
Cameron, from Manchester, is accused of one count of serious sexual assault. He also denies the charge.
The men met nearly 40 years ago at a Liverpool University Halloween party, before having a civil partnership in 2006.
Dr Calland left general practice in 2001 to teach pre hospital emergency care.
He founded the Med-Alert charity – which helped save the lives of road crash victims, people injured at work or those suffering serious illness – in 1988 with another GP who has since passed away. It is understood he is no longer involved in the charity.
The trial continues.
