A north-east radiographer who struggling to carry out basic tasks has again been ordered to work under supervision.
Jane Onoh avoided being struck-off when her case was first heard by the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (HCPTS) last year.
She had been volunteering at Fraserburgh Hospital one day a week during July and August, 2017, to help her secure a full-time role.
But colleagues noticed she was unable to conduct simple patient examinations – even after teaching her how to – and took their concerns to the regulator.
A tribunal in Aberdeen found Mrs Onoh’s fitness to practice was impaired and she was ordered to continue working under supervision while undergoing additional training.
Since then, she has been studying from textbooks and online tutorials, but also gave birth and has been unable to find a job to let her complete the requirements.
The HCPTS has now given Mrs Onoh an additional 12 months to do so.
Its report said: “She has not yet been in a position to remediate her failings due to her personal circumstances and maternity leave.
“Although there has been no significant or meaningful progress made by the registrant since the final hearing, this has been through no fault of her own.”
