Struck off by HCPC for Sexual Misconduct
Strinking off and Suspensions
Since the start of 2017 a number of paramedics have been suspended or struck off by the Health and Care Professions Council for issues of sexual misconduct.
When you receive a letter from the HCPC alleging you have been involved in sexual misconduct against colleagues or patients you feel isolated and anxious.
Sexual misconduct covers a broad range of inappropriate and unwanted behaviour. It also extends to unwanted touching, stalking or using abusive or degrading remarks. It can range from a misguided inappropriate remark to at worst an allegation of sexual assault or rape.
Any sexual contact or a romantic attachment between a professional and patient will be a breach of The Standards of Performance, Conduct and Ethics. Mutual consent will be rejected as a justification because of the disparity in power and vulnerability.
