Social worker struck off after sexual text messages to client

A social worker who admitted forming an inappropriate relationship with a service user has been struck off the social care register.

Mr G, who was a drugs worker at the time, admitted sending sexually explicit texts to service user Ms A but denied tocuhing her breasts, kissing and having sex with her. He also admitted discussing the state of his marriage with her and his relationship with a GP.

He denied he had bought wine for the woman, who was being treated for an alcohol problem. The practitioner, a former heroin addict, also admitted introducing another service user, Ms B, to colleagues and patients as a student social worker and allowing her to sit in on meetings with other service users.

The GSCC decided that the allegations were true following a three-day hearing in London this week. Mr G did not appear at the hearing but, through a statement issued by his legal representative, said he was “heartily glad he has finally been removed from the register, an outcome he has been actively pursuing since 2007″.
