Care Council for Wales cautions Neath Port Talbot social worker

The Care Council for Wales has cautioned a Neath Port Talbot Council social worker for failing to follow child protection policy and guidelines. Following a conduct hearing last week, Tracey Lee Wood was found guilty of two out of three charges brought against her, and the admonishment will stay on her public record for two years.

Wood was found to have breached the following parts of the code of conduct, among others: respecting and maintaining the dignity and privacy of service users; respecting confidential information, and taking necessary steps to minimise the risks of users harming themselves or others.

However, the conduct committee took into account the lack of further problems in Wood’s practice, her excessive workload at the time of the incidents, acknowledgement that she had learned from her experience and her continued employment at Neath Port Talbot Council.
