Our case studies are based on real life fitness to practise concerns we have received. They illustrate the types of issues that are taken into consideration by a panel when deciding if a registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired, and if so what sanction to apply.
|Type of concern||Dishonesty by falsifying time sheet and travel expense claims|
Standards of conduct, performance and ethics (updated in August 2012)
The NHS Counter Fraud Unit of the local NHS Trust raised concerns about a physiotherapist. On numerous occasions, the registrant submitted timesheets and claimed payments for hours they did not work. They, also, submitted timesheets purporting to be signed by a colleague when they had not been and claimed travel expenses which they were not entitled to and after they were no longer employed.
|Measures we put in place to protect the public||The Conduct and Competence Committee imposed a striking-off order.|
