HCPTS - Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service - Jacqueline Ann Thornely

A panel of the HCPTS heard that Mrs Thornely was originally placed on a 24 month conditions of practice order on the grounds of misconduct whilst employed at the Hartlepool Borough Council.

The Panel further heard that Mrs Thornely’s original failings included conducting an inadequate risk assessment in relation to Child / Family A, including not conducting police checks and not adequately analysing information received regarding the parent’s propensity to be dishonest.

Panel Chair Helen Carter commented:

“The Panel determined that there is no evidence before it today that could satisfy that Mrs Thornely’s fitness to practice was no longer impaired. Her lack of engagement in the process demonstrates that she is no longer committed to the profession.”

The Panel ordered for the name of Jacqueline Ann Thornely to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Mrs Thornely was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
