Indian radiographer fired by British hospital for incompetence
Saturday June 15, 2013 12:16 PM, IANS

An Indian hired as a radiographer to treat cancer patients at a British hospital has been suspended from practising in the country over his shocking incompetence.

Manik Sharma, who is in his 30s, was fired after two months and reported to Health and Care Professions Council which has now suspended him from practising in Britain for a year, Daily Mail reported.

Sharma was given a contract with Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust following a successful interview over the internet video phone service Skype.

As Sharma began working at the hospital, his obvious lack of competence and understanding stunned his senior colleagues who compared his skill level to that of a first-year university student.

NHS bosses terminated his contract after just two months amid fears that Sharma's lack of expertise could potentially put patients at risk.

Sharma was also reported to the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) which has now suspended him from practising for one year for failing to meet the required level of competence of a newly-qualified radiographer.

He was employed May last year 2012 following Skype quizzing but his contract was terminated in July.
