HCPTS - Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service - Samantha Allison Girt

A panel of the HCPTS heard that whilst allocated as the social worker for Family A, Miss Girt hugged Service User A and touched her knee. Following her removal as the allocated social worker Miss Girt exchanged inappropriate personal communications of a sexual nature with Service User A.

The Panel further heard that Miss Girt established an inappropriate relationship with Service User B by sending him inappropriate emails of a personal nature.

Panel Chair Marian Killen commented:

“In Miss Girt’s case, not only was there dishonesty but also persistent and sustained sexually motivated conduct in breach of professional boundaries. There is no evidence of insight or remediation, and as such the Panel took the view that there is an unwillingness on Miss Girt’s part to remediate her misconduct.”

The Panel ordered for the name of Samantha Allison Girt to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Miss Girt was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
