A panel of the HCPTS heard that Ms Maxwell failed to ensure that S47 Child Protection procedures were initiated in relation to three service users.

The Panel further heard that Ms Maxwell allocated a case to Colleague A and did not provide adequate management oversight or support.

Panel Chair Graham Aitken commented:

“It is a fundamental element of the role of a social worker that vulnerable service users are protected from avoidable harm. The Panel is satisfied that fair-minded members of the public would have significant concerns about a senior social worker who failed to carry out basic steps to avoid the risk of harm.”

The Panel ordered for the name of Carol Ann Maxwell to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Ms Maxwell was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
