RAF Nurse who Posed as Teenage Girl Struck Off
Registered nurse and serving RAF Officer Kevin Scrafton has been ruled unfit to practice by the NMC following conviction in November for offences involving the making and possession of child pornography.
Kevin Scrafton was sentenced to 18 months in prison following his arrest in November 2016. He admitted to police that he pretended to be a young girl online to engage in conversations. He also created fake social media accounts using pictures of real people.
subsequent police searches uncovered a memory stick containing indecent images of children.
The NMC panel summarised by saying that there was a “real risk of repetition”.
The panel also said it had received “no further evidence of insight into his behaviour, or of any remediation into his failings”, which suggested a “harmful deep-seated personality or attitudinal problem”.
