UK psych nurse struck off register for inappropriate relationship with teen patient

A HAMPSHIRE mental health nurse has been struck off after being found guilty of having an inappropriate relationship with a vulnerable teenage patient.

Shaun Lyons, from Romsey, was found guilty of misconduct by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), for breaching personal and professional boundaries on a string on occasions.

Through a series of letters and telephone calls while the 18-year-old, known as Patient A, was in prison, Lyons invited him to go on holiday with him, shared information about his colleagues and other patients and pleaded him to keep their relationship a secret.

The pair met at the Hampshire psychiatric unit where Lyons, of Canal Walk, worked. Their relationship was uncovered when prison guards found the letters, the panel was told.

  1. Nasty piece of work. I was in a relationship with this man for five years. “Emotional abuse” is too light a term to explain the experience. I really should publish my story somewhere. LOL.
