Social Worker, Claire-Dominique McGhee, Struck Off Following Review of Suspension

Social worker Claire-Dominique McGhee has been struck off the HCPC Register following a review of a six month suspension on grounds of misconduct whilst employed by Bristol City Council.

HCPC - Health and Care Professions Council - Claire-Dominique McGhee

A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee heard that at the Final Hearing it had been found proved that Ms McGhee omitted to conduct visits, reviews and assessments in respect of a number of services users and failed to attend meetings and supervisions with professional colleagues.

The Panel further heard that Ms McGhee had failed to attend the initial HCPC Final Hearing which took place on 4 and 5 May 2016.

Panel Chair Stephen Fash commented:

“Ms McGhee has not engaged with the HCPC and has not provided any of the information suggested by the previous Panel. Accordingly the Panel has concluded that her fitness to practise remains impaired.

The Panel has not information to suggest that Ms McGhee is able or willing to resolve or remedy her failings and therefore determines that a striking off order is the only appropriate and proportionate sanction to taking into account the serious nature of the original misconduct.”

The Panel directed to strike the name of Ms Claire- Dominique McGhee from the Register from the date the order comes into effect 2 December 2016.

Claire-Dominique McGhee was not present and not represented at the hearing.
