Radiographer Julie A Taylor has been struck off the HCPC Register following a review of a suspension order resulting from misconduct and dishonesty whilst employed at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospital Foundation Trust.
A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee conducted a mandatory review of a suspension which was imposed on 14 July 2015 for a period of 12 months. Mrs Taylor was originally suspended for allegations which included providing inaccurate and dishonest explanations to her employer regarding her absences from work.
Rachel O’Connell commented:
“This was a case of dishonesty, involving prolonged and repeated lies about the mental ill health of a family member to both her employer and her professional colleagues. There was no evidence of remediation or engagement. There was no indication in the last two years that she had re-engaged with her profession or with her regulator, or that she had any wish to do so, nor has she updated her contact details with the HCPC.”
The panel concluded that Mrs Taylor’s fitness to practise remains impaired and a striking- off order is the appropriate and proportionate action.
The name of Mrs Julie A Taylor was directed to be removed from the register from 11 August 2016 with an interim order to cover the appeal period.
Mrs Julie A Taylor was not present nor represented at the hearing.
