Kelly Anne Wheldrick (SW64616) has been struck off the HCPC Register on the grounds of misconduct whilst employed as a social worker by Wakefield Metropolitan District Council.
The Panel heard that Mrs Wheldrick’s original failings included accessing service users’ social care records without a professional reason for doing so.
Panel Chair Paul Grant commented:
“The Registrant has yet to evidence her full understanding of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of records, regardless of whether the information is shared. In particular, she has yet to evidence her understanding of the impact, or potential impact, of her breaches on the individuals whose confidentiality she compromised and on public confidence in the profession.”
The Panel ordered for the name of Kelly Anne Wheldrick to be struck off the HCPC Register.
Mrs Wheldrick was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
