Occupational therapist struck off following substantive review

Occupational therapist Amy Mawson (OT26164) has been struck off the HCPC Register following a substantive review of a suspension order originally imposed on 13 April 2016.

HCPTS - Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service - Amy Mawson

A panel of the HCPTS heard that Mrs Mawson was originally suspended for a period of twelve months on the grounds of misconduct whilst employed at Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust.

The Panel further heard that Mrs Mawson’s failings included not completing and recording adequate assessments, and not acting in Service User A’s best interests and / or failing to maintain professional boundaries in that she arranged for a friend of hers to purchase a horse from the service user.

Panel Chair Michael McCulley commented:

“There is no evidence before the Panel today that could satisfy it that Mrs Mawson’s fitness to practice was no longer impaired. The Panel determined there remains a real risk of repetition of her misconduct.”

The Panel ordered for the name of Amy Mawson to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Mrs Mawson was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
