Professor Stephen Hawking’s nurse struck off over his care
12 March 2019 – BBC News

The former nurse of Professor Stephen Hawking was struck off the nursing register after a panel found she failed to provide appropriate care to the late scientist.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) said on 12.03.2019 that Patricia Dowdy “failed to provide the standards of good, professional care that we expect and Professor Hawking deserved“.

Mrs Dowdy had faced multiple misconduct charges in relation to the care she provided to Prof Hawking.

The NMC said the charges included financial misconduct, dishonesty, not providing appropriate care, failing to cooperate with the NMC and not having the correct qualifications.

Prof Hawking died in March 2018 at the age of 76.
