Scots Ebola Nurse Cleared Of Misconduct

Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey will be allowed to continue to practise after being cleared of misconduct over her return to the UK with the virus.

An independent panel at the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in Edinburgh found three charges against Ms Cafferkey were not proven and therefore her fitness to practise was "not impaired''.

The Scottish medical worker, 40, became infected with Ebola while working in Sierra Leone in 2014.

The NMC had alleged Ms Cafferkey allowed an incorrect temperature to be recorded during the screening process at Heathrow Airport towards the end of December that year and that she left a screening area without reporting her true temperature.

The panel said Ms Cafferkey had not set out to mislead Public Health England.
