Smear fear as cops nick ‘bogus nurse’
A WOMAN has been arrested on suspicion of posing as a nurse for FOUR years.
The 46-year-old was held by police investigating her employment at four GP surgeries from August 2006 to September last year.
More than 1,400 people, including children, who received vaccinations and cervical smears from her are being contacted by health officials.
Women who had their last smear with the woman are being offered a repeat test and extra vaccinations are also being offered.
NHS Kent and Medway said the woman has a background as a health care assistant.
A spokesman for the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said: “A 46-year-old woman from Brecon in Wales has been arrested and has been released on bail.” NAME: Janice Mullins AGE: 33 FROM: Stockport OCCUPATION: Receptionist RELATIONSHIP STATUS: Divorced FAVE DRINK: White wine FAVE FOOD: Fish and chips FAVE FILM: My Father the
