A panel of the HCPTS heard that Mr Williams was originally suspended for twelve months on the grounds of misconduct whilst employed with BMI Bath Clinic.

The Panel further heard that Mr Williams’ original failings included not shutting and/or locking the anaesthetic drug cupboards and/or fridge whilst closing down a theatre, and not adequately checking and/or preparing the anaesthetic machine prior to a patient being anaethetised.

Panel Chair Eimear McAllister commented:

“In light of Mr William’s failure to engage with the HCPC the Panel concluded that his fitness to practise remains impaired. In the absence of evidence as to remediation, there would be a risk of repetition of his misconduct with consequent risks to the public and professional colleagues.”

The Panel ordered for the name of Justin Williams to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Mr Williams was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
