Press Statement from Lesley Keenan, DHSS Director of Human Resource Management regarding Margaret Collins 10 March 2006

    The Department of Health and Social Security can confirm that the appeal hearing of Mrs Collins, Health Worker, was heard on 6th and 7th March 2006 in accordance with the Department’s internal procedures.

    The independent appeal panel concluded that the finding of Gross Misconduct by the initial disciplinary panel had been correct but ruled that the sanction imposed had been too harsh.

    The Department fully accepts this outcome and will work with Mrs Collins to implement her re-introduction to work as quickly and effectively as is practicable.

    The Department is disappointed that it has taken so long to complete the appeal procedure. However, this experience demonstrates that the DHSS’ internal disciplinary procedure, if allowed to progress, does work.
