Social worker awaits General Social Care Council conduct committee verdict

    A social worker who allegedly formed inappropriate relationships with service users will find out this week if he is guilty of misconduct.

    The General Social Care Council’s conduct committee will reconvene in Birmingham today to decide on the case involving agency social worker Eric Charlesworth.

    During his hearing in December, Charlesworth, who has been a social worker since 1974, admitted stroking a service user’s hair and measuring his chest but he denied his actions were inappropriate.

    He also admitted sending a text message received by another service user saying he had “lined up some top totty” for him. But he claimed it had been intended for a friend.
