Social worker Gwenyth Lauris Moncrieff has been struck off the HCPC Register following a second review of a 2014 substantive suspension resulting from misconduct.
A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee conducted a second review of Ms Moncrieff’s suspension from the Register imposed on 9 July 2014 and extended for a further 12 months on 13 July 2015.
The Panel heard that Ms Moncrieff was originally suspended for reasons including failing to take appropriate action to safeguard a service user, breaching client confidentiality, and failing to keep full and accurate records of contact with service users whilst employed by Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust.
Panel Chair Philip Geering commented:
“In over two years Ms Moncrieff has not submitted any evidence of remediation or expressed any intention to do so in the future.
The Panel has noted that Ms Moncrieff has declined to apply for voluntary removal. Since declining that option, she has again indicated that she would like the proceedings to end and that she should be struck off.”
The Panel concluded that the only appropriate and proportionate action is to strike the name of Gwenyth Lauris Moncrieff from the Register.
Ms Gwenyth Lauris Moncrieff was not present or represented at the hearing.
