Midwife continues to work despite 'disgraceful' conduct

From Morning Report, 7:50 am on 11 June 2019

A midwife whose conduct has been termed "disgraceful" by the Health and Disability Commissioner is continuing to work and her identity is secret.

Commissioner Anthony Hill on Monday issued his report into the midwife who deliberately deceived a woman in labour by not giving her the pain relief she requested.

The Midwifery Council is now also investigating. The council's chief executive is Sharron Cole.
