MWENITETE: RAF NURSE STRUCK OFF OVER LIES

HIGH WYCOMBE, NAPHILL, BUCKS; CARTERTON, OXFORDSHIRE An RAF nurse who lied about his qualifications and dished out prescription anti-biotics and contraception to servicemen and women has been barred from the profession. David Mwenitete prescribed the drugs over 40 times to patients at RAF medical centres after deceiving staff into thinking he was qualified as a Nurse Independent Prescriber (NIP). And although his prescriptions of anti-biotics had 'largely been appropriate', an investigation by the Nursing and Midwifery Council uncovered 'significant failings' with his prescriptions of contraceptives. When a nurse specialist at High Wycombe challenged Mwenitete, he wagged his finger at her and said 'You are trying to make trouble for me', the hearing was told.

MIDWIFE WHO KEPT SHODDY RECORDS AT SCANDAL HOSPITAL KEEPS JOB

BARROW-IN-FURNESS, CUMBRIA A senior midwife who kept shoddy records in cases where two babies died at a scandal-hit hospital can return to work - despite being found guilty of serious misconduct.

Last month a health service ombudsman review found that midwives' failings were not investigated by the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust, which runs the hospital. Bowns faced a misconduct hearing at the Nursing and Midwifery Council over the standard of care she provided to two mothers and their babies who later died.

HARRY: NURSE CARRIES THE CAN FOR HORROR HOSPITAL

STAFFS The former head of nursing at scandal-hit Stafford Hospital has agreed to be struck off for making reckless cutbacks that left patients in danger for eight years.

:NURSE THO TRIED TO THROTTLE BRAIN DAMAGED AMPUTEE STRUCK OFF

NORTHAMPTON A nurse who tried to throttle a brain damaged amputee saw her 35 year career in tatters after she was struck off.

DINNIGAN: NURSE CLEARED OF USING RACIALLY MOTIVATED LANGUAGE

SHEFFIELD A nurse was cleared today (Thurs) of using racially motivated language after a tribunal found her comments about relocating foreign workers were 'framed as a question'. Beverley Dinnigan was accused of saying 'there is a law or a policy somewhere saying that the British staff keep their jobs first' after she found out operating theatre staff at Northern General Hospital in Sheffield were to be redeployed. Dinnigan also faced an allegation that she later told theatre nurses: 'They should be looking at the overseas nurses, why should British people be losing our jobs, when we have people on permits working here.' But a Nursing and Midwifery Council tribunal cleared the nurse of being racially motivated after they found that she had asked about her right to a job in a meeting.
