Amjid Mahmood (PA36897) has been struck off the HCPC Register on the grounds of misconduct and dishonesty whilst employed as a paramedic with Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (the Trust).

HCPTS - Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service - Amjid Mahmood

A panel of the HCPTS heard that between 1 December 2015 and 12 March 2016, Mr Mahmood claimed overtime for periods of time that he did not work on approximately 35 occasions.

The Panel further heard that whilst receiving paid sick leave from the Trust, Mr Mahmood undertook paid work with Regional Medical Services and KFA Medical. Mr Mahmood then self referred to the HCPC on 26 September 2016 stating that he fully admitted and accepted the allegations made against him.

Panel Chair Eileen Carr commented:

“The Panel considered that the dishonesty in the circumstances of this case is difficult to remedy. The dishonesty in this case was not a one-off incident, but was repeated over a sustained period of time.

The Panel has decided that the need to protect the public and the wider public interest outweighed Mr Mahmood’s interests in the circumstances of this case.”

The Panel therefore ordered for the name of Mr Amjid Mahmood to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Mr Mahmood was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
