Nurse posed ‘significant risk to public’ after KGH incident

Nurse posed ‘significant risk to public’ after KGH incident A nurse who gave a patient at Kettering General Hospital prescriptions without the relevant qualifications has been struck off.

 Andrew Richardson has had his name taken off the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register after a hearing in London.

A previous hearing heard how Mr Richardson, an acute oncology nurse, was working at the hospital when it was on ‘black alert’ in 2015.

Concerns were raised about Mr Richardson not having followed the correct procedures. Northamptonshire Telegraph
