    A nurse who slapped one of her colleagues round the face with a dead trout and called another a "dirty *****" was today struck off the register.The Nursing and Midwifery Council found Patricia Ann Jennings guilty of misconduct as a result of her poor practice and deeply offensive behaviour, which also included groping other staff on her ward.
    The council's professional conduct committee found Ms Jennings, 55, behaved in an inappropriate sexual manner while she was working as a ward manager at the Kent and Sussex hospital, Tunbridge Wells.
    The panel found the nurse had groped colleagues on the ward on several occasions and slapped the face of one with a dead trout saying "give us a kiss" or words to that effect.
    It also upheld allegations that she wrapped a bandage around the head of a ward clerk whilst making a telephone call and referred to another nurse as a "dirty *****".

    Good Cod! Sounds like she was having a whale of a time, even doing the conger? I guess her appeal would flounder, bassed on the evidence, especially that of the consultant sturgeon.

    There may be a ray of light. She may get another herring if she isn't koi, gets her skates on and blames her actions on a migraine or even a bad haddock. I suggest her lawyer gets on his motor pike and goes round to her plaice - eel be needed.

    There's no fun in the NHS anymore is there?

    He also added that it had been taken into account that she was a damn good multi-tasker as she was able to bandage someone's head and make a phone call at the same time. Does she have 3 hands? The NHS needs more like her.

    An artist's impression was also released of the ward clerk
