Social Worker Conduct Hearing Scheduled

A hearing into the conduct of a Registered Social Worker from Taunton will be held from 17 to 19 July 2007 by the social care workforce regulator for England, the General Social Care Council (GSCC).

The Registered Social Worker is alleged to have committed misconduct and breached the GSCC’s Code of Practice for Social Care Workers by using their computer at work to access a number of pornographic images.

All Registered Social Workers are accountable for their conduct and practice. Action can be taken if they breach the code of practice. They can be removed from the Social Care Register if it is considered that they are no longer suitable to be a Registered Social Worker.
