exclusive uk authority suspends nigerian nurse over dishonesty may strike name off register

A Nigerian nurse, identified as Elizabeth Offier, who was suspended over misconduct by the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) now risks being struck off from the agency's register.

A panel of the Fitness to Practice Committee of the NMC had earlier suspended Ms Offier for six months for "impairment of her fitness to practice arising from misconduct", but this was questioned by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA).

PSA filed an appeal in March 2023 because it said the penalty imposed by the panel was not sufficient for the "protection of the public." It asked the court to quash the decision and substitute a striking-off order.
