Midwife facing misconduct: hearing adjourned

THE case of a Hereford midwife facing a misconduct hearing has been adjourned.

Jill Morris was the subject of a four-day hearing in London looking into allegations that while working at Hereford County Hospital she told a mother in her care that her placenta “looked awful”.

Ms Morris was also alleged to have told the same woman that she “looked like she was on 40 cigarettes a day”.

A Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing in London has adjourned the matter to a future date, yet to be fixed, after hearing evidence last week.

Other charges against her include giving a mother an overdose of Syntocinon, a synthetic form of the hormone oxytocin, and that she allowed a student midwife to perform internal examinations on two women.

The allegations date between June 2005 and March 2007.

She is no longer employed at the County Hospital.
