THE FORMER director of nursing at the Stafford Hospital, Janice Harry, has been struck off the nursing register after reaching a legal agreement.

Jackie Smith, chief executive and registrar of the Nursing and Midwifery Council said: “We are pleased to confirm a legal agreement has been reached between the NMC, Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and Janice Harry, which will lead to her being struck off the nursing register.

“We had previously raised concerns about the sanction imposed by an independent panel in November 2013 and took immediate steps to refer it to the PSA for review.

“The case raised important issues about the responsibility of nurses who hold senior management positions and their duty to ensure the protection of the public.”
