Paramedic Richard C Moxon has been struck off the HCPC Register on grounds of misconduct whilst employed with North West Ambulance Service Trust (NWAS).

HCPC - Health and Care Professions Council - Richard C Moxon

A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee heard that on 28 and 29 November 2013 NWAS received complaints relating to Mr Moxon’s behaviour during his attendance at an emergency call at the home of Service User A. Allegations included behaving inappropriately towards the service user’s female relatives and returning to Patient A’s property unannounced the following day.

The Panel further heard that following an internal investigation into the complaint and a Clinical Review of the services Mr Moxon provided on 27 November 2013, some clinical matters were raised in respect of the Patient Report Form (PRF), which Mr Moxon had completed, and the care he provided. This included failing to record the correct time on the PRF and not acting in the best interests of Service User A.

Panel Chair William Nelson commented:

“The Panel had regard to the nature of the misconduct which included matters of a sexually motivated and inappropriate nature. In the Panel’s view this type of misconduct was very serious in nature and demonstrated attitudinal issues on the part of the Registrant.”

“For reasons including the risk of repetition, little or no evidence of insight and remorse; and the non-engagement with these proceedings, the Panel concluded that there was no other way to protect the public and to meet the wider public interest, than to impose a Striking Off order”.

The Panel directed to strike the name of Richard C Moxon from the HCPC Register from 21 December 2016 with an Interim Suspension to cover the appeal period.

Richard C Moxon was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
