Am­bu­lance man faces boot over ‘boob boast’


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PARA­MEDIC ac­cused of boast­ing on Face­book about feel­ing a pa­tient’s breasts faces be­ing struck off if found guilty of the charge.

Mark Small is al­leged to have posted a com­ment on the so­cial net­work­ing site, say­ing: “saved some­one’s life to­day and man­aged to cop a feel of some crack­ing jubblies. Ex­cel­lent shift.”

He will ap­pear at a con­duct hear­ing of the Health Pro­fes­sions Coun­cil (HPC) this week and could be struck off if he’s found guilty of mis­con­duct.

The HPC says Mr Small posted the com­ments on Face­book be­tween June 28 and June 29 last year.

It claims the post con­sti­tutes mis­con­duct and casts doubts over his fit­ness to prac­tise.

Mr Small, who lives in the Bris­tol area, worked for Great Western Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, which pro­vides emer­gency care and pa­tient trans­port across Glouces­ter­shire.

A spokesman con­firmed Mr Small is still em­ployed by the trust.

He added: “He is still work­ing for us.

“It was dealt with us­ing our in­ter­nal dis­ci­plinary pro­ce­dures.”

The hear­ing is set to get un­der way on Fri­day and is sched­uled to last for a day.
