Radiographer Marlo Medel has been struck off the HCPC Register following a review of a twelve month suspension order imposed in 29 July 2015.

HCPC - Health and Care Professions Council - Marlo Medel

A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee heard that Mr Medel was originally suspended after his fitness to practise was found to be impaired following conviction for assault by beating whilst employed by the Royal London Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust in Whitechapel.

The Panel further heard that Mr Medel was sentenced to a nine week period of imprisonment and a restraining order after pleading guilty to the offence, which involved an attack on his partner in front of his child.

Panel Chair Brian Wroe commented:

“The Panel has noted that Mr Medel has not engaged with the HCPC since January 2015. The Panel can only conclude that in these circumstances he has not developed any insight, remorse or remediation and that he remains a risk to the public.”

The Panel concluded that the only appropriate a proportionate sanction sufficient to protect the public is a striking off order.

Mr Marlo Medel was not present nor represented at the hearing.
