A nurse has been struck off because she did not speak English effectively and would not take lessons.
How did they manage the interview? I mean, there was an interview for the job, surely?
Colleagues of West Sussex nurse Agata Bulka had to “speak slowly to ensure she was able to understand what was said”, a disciplinary panel found.
A Nursing and Midwifery Council Fitness to Practise Committee heard how colleagues had to repeat what they said so that she could understand.
It found that although there was no harm to patients, the risk would arise if she could not understand instructions and others were not around to help her.
In other words, it took two to complete one person’s job. And we wonder why the NHS never runs out of money?
The nurse had been told in a previous disciplinary meeting that she must undertake English lessons.
The home at which she worked, which was excluded from the report, offered to pay for the lessons.
But a later meeting found that she had failed to attend the classes and had not passed the required IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test.
She had also failed to attend the meeting and all the letters sent by the committee had been returned to sender.
She probably couldn’t read them! And these are the people the left-wing press is telling us we can’t do without…
