Radiographer handed 12-month HCPC suspension

Published: 06 June 2017 Ezine

A radiographer has been suspended from the HCPC Register for twelve months on the grounds of misconduct whilst working at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. 

A panel of the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service heard that Miss Tyreman advised her employers that she had been diagnosed with leukaemia when she had not been diagnosed with the condition.

She also indicated on various dates that the reason for her absence from work was ‘cancer’. 

Panel Chair William Nelson commented: “Miss Tyreman’s conduct fell well below the standards that are expected of all health professionals.

“Honesty is essential for all professionals and Miss Tyreman was in breach of that fundamental requirement.

“Members of the public place their trust in the honesty of health professionals and would not expect the Panel to allow Miss Tyreman to be free to practise without restriction.”

Miss Tyreman was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
