A NURSE is fighting for life after her anaesthetist boyfriend allegedly injected her with a noxious substance.
Kelly Wilson, 31, was admitted to a hospital four days ago after she was believed to have been injected with unspecified "controlled drugs".
Dr Hossam Metwally, an anaesthetist and pain specialist, was charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm and administering a noxious substance between July 2 and July 5.
Grimsby Magistrates' Court heard the substances had a "near fatal" effect on Miss Wilson, the Daily Mail reports.
It added she is reportedly suffering from organ failure and the court heard her condition remains critical.
Prosecutor Martin Howard said her family called an ambulance when they checked on her on Thursday and Miss Wilson was taken to Grimsby’s Diana Princess of Wales Hospital.
Dr Metwally is also an anaesthetist and chronic pain specialist with the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Grimsby's Diana Princess of Wales Hospital.
Humberside Police said the force was called by concerned staff at the Grimsby Hospital, who were worried about the safety of a woman admitted in an "unresponsive" state with a "serious medical condition".
A bail application was refused and Metwally, who did not enter pleas, was remanded in custody to appear at Grimsby Crown Court on August 5.

It is understood new arrangements were made by the NHS trust for Metwally's appointments at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.

"He will be excluded from working at all Trust premises. We will not be commenting further at this time."
