Practice Nurse Karen Boyle was employed by us for 2 years until February 2018. There has been an investigation that has resulted in her being struck off by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). We have issued the following statement to the press.
‘The Partners at Strathcalder Practice would like to apologise for any distress caused by this incident. We contacted the women who were potentially affected and re-invited them for a smear. If we identify any staff competency issues, these are fully investigated and dealt with in accordance with our policies and procedures which may include notifying the relevant authority.’
If any patient has any concerns please contact the Practice.
