According to an investigation by the NHS Counter Fraud Service, Sadler had managed to land the job in Whitechapel after forging her references using the name of a GP at Pencester Medical Centre.
But it is believed she had only been working at the surgery for a few weeks before staff discovered the truth and she was dismissed in July 2008.
