A top heart doctor repeatedly stole drugs from a hospital for his own personal use, a tribunal heard. Consultant cardiologist Dr Paul Dunne 'misappropriated' medication from Royal Bolton Hospital on several occasions in 2021.

The tribunal heard he had 'obtained' the security code for the treatment room from nurses and would take medication which had not been put away or, by taking the key when no-one was looking, open the medicine cabinet.

On one occasion he also asked a nurse if an unnamed medication was available, falsely claiming it was for a patient who was coming in for a echocardiogram later that day.

The thefts were described as 'calculated and manipulative'. Dr Dunne was sacked on August 12, 2022, following an internal investigation. READ MORE: "I was saying wake up, it’s baby day, but Tom didn’t respond.
