Stonehaven care home nurse manager suspended amid probe

A nurse who was in charge of an Aberdeenshire care home has been suspended for 18 months amid claims she may present a risk to the public.

Pamela Tavendale was manager of Care UK’s Mowat Care Home in Stonehaven.

Several complaints were made about the service provided to its elderly residents.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council said a full and proper investigation into Ms Tavendale’s conduct was being carried out.
