A nurse who was caught on camera at the hospital she worked at swiping tablets to treat a headache has been suspended from the profession.

Francesca Morgan, 33, took paracetamol tablets, which were intended for patients, from a medication room. She was convicted of theft at the magistrates court in 2022.

And she has now been suspended for six months following an investigation by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Morgan, from Woolton, worked at the Arrowe Park hospital on Merseyside as a band 5 registered nurse.

According to a NMC fitness to practise committee report, as a result of unaccounted medication losses, covert cameras were set up in the medication room of the hospital in Birkenhead, Wirral, in June 2021.
