Operating Department Practitioner Struck Off on Grounds of Conviction

A panel of the HCPTS heard that Mr Bamford was convicted at the Crown Court at Bristol of theft and public nuisance. He was sentenced to two years imprisonment.

The Panel further heard that the charges arose when Mr Bamford stole controlled drugs, namely Fentanyl and Diamorphine, from the NHS Treatment Centre in Emersons Green, near Bristol where he was employed.

Panel Chair Sarah Baalham commented:

“The conduct which led to the conviction was serious, deliberate, reckless and abused both abuse of trust and dishonesty. In the Panel’s view, Mr Bamford’s actions are entirely incompatible with his continued presence on the Register, and members of the public would be shocked if he were to remain on it.”

The Panel ordered for the name of David Bamford to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Mr Bamford was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
