Radiographer struck off for falsely claiming overtime
A RADIOGRAPHER at a local hospital trust raked in nearly �8,500 for falsely claiming more than 130 hours of overtime.
Ashok Mahadik said he had worked on 42 separate occasions when he hadn’t while employed by Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust – which manages Queen’s Hospital, in Rom Valley Way and King George Hospital, in Goodmayes.
The Heath Professionals Council (HPC) struck the doctor off.
The overtime amounted to around 132.5 hours - the equivalent of �8490 - a panel of the HPC Conduct and Competence Committee heard.
Mahadik was contracted to work 39 hours per week, including three long days from 7.30am to 8.30pm.
