Amin Abdullah: Nurse who set himself on fire 'unfairly dismissed'

An NHS nurse who set himself on fire after being dismissed from his job was "treated unfairly", a report has found.

Amin Abdullah, 41, who died after dousing himself in petrol outside Kensington Palace in February 2016, had lost his job at Charing Cross Hospital.

An independent investigation found the trust's disciplinary procedures against Mr Abdullah were "weak and unfair".

Evidence submitted to the hearing panel did not paint "an honest and complete picture", the report said.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust chief executive, Professor Tim Orchard, said: "It is now clear that we let Amin down and, for that, I am truly sorry."
The probe conducted by independent investigation consultancy Verita found the hearing panel did not have "all the information they needed available to them".

Mr Abdullah was accused of being dishonest by his investigating officer despite little or no evidence, the report found.

The investigating officer failed to disclose evidence that was critical of her but tended to show Mr Abdullah being in the right, it added.

A three-month delay in proceedings, which Mr Abdullah found "extremely stressful", was also criticised.http://hp-printer-helpline.com/
