A nurse who was employed as a manager with responsibility for running an accommodation and support service for people with psychiatric diagnoses was convicted of causing loss by deception and theft in a special relationship after taking petty cash from his employer, and charging purchases for his own use to his employer's accounts. The Tribunal was satisfied that the conviction reflected adversely on the nurse's fitness to practise, noting that the nurse was in a position of significant trust and responsibility. The Tribunal concluded that the "only possible outcome" was cancellation of registration. Derek Wilson (424/Nur11/194P).
