Okee v Nursing and Midwifery Council

Nursing – Nursing and Midwifery Council. The Administrative Court dismissed the appellant nurse's appeal against her erasure from the register. The respondent Nursing Midwifery Council's Fitness to Practise panel had not introduced a further charge of which the appellant had not had notice. Further, it had not failed to give adequate weight or credit to admissions made by the appellant and had not failed to take into account the mitigating features of the case. Nor had the panel been wrong to characterise the appellant as evasive. Finally, in the circumstances, the panel's decision to strike the appellant off the register had not been excessive or disproportionate.
