Social Worker Struck Off for Fake Mental Health Assessment

Social worker Saeed Ebrahim Seedat has been struck off the HCPC Register for misconduct after completing a Mental Capacity Assessment without visiting service user A and involving them in the decision making process.

A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee heard that Mr Seedat was employed by Leicester City Council in September 2013 when he completed the assessment without visiting service user A and then dishonestly told a manager that he had made the visit.

The Panel further heard that Mr Seedat requested that documents relating to service users be shredded, saved documents onto his tablet and kept others on his desk without saving the majority onto the CareFirst or Smart Save computer systems.

Panel Chair Mr David Clark commented:
