Nurse struck off after taking home £16000 compensation in ‘cash for crash’ scam – ITV News

A nurse has been struck off for faking injuries to pocket more than £16,000 in a bogus “crash for cash” insurance scam.

50-year-old Nicola Bartlett, from Caerphilly County, lied about suffering injuries in a car crash while working in a hospital A&E department – saying another driver ploughed into her car writing it off.

The former nurse at Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr hospital in Ystrad Mynach took home £16,764 in compensation.

A fitness to practice hearing was told Bartlett was dismissed for gross misconduct from Aneurin Bevan Health Board in August 2016 and was jailed for 12 months.

Now a Nursing and Midwifery Council panel has handed Bartlett a striking off order – stopping her from working as a nurse for life.

She was one of more than 150 people in Britain’s biggest ever “crash for cash” insurance racket.
