    This made me both sad and angry. Where was the support, the compassion and the help she required?

    Sounds like she really wasnt well enough to be working and probably knew it so resigned knowing she wouldnt pass an investigation.

    I hope she gets some kind of disability payment from the gov thou I know the trouble she could have getting it.

    Its just so sad having to resign off the register totally. I lost my job after it had been kept open for me for 2 yrs, I was so grateful for that as it gave me hope during that time, I just stopped registering on my professional register after that, seems a kinder way of letting go than 'being removed'. Shame she wasn't allowed to do the same, they like their pound of flesh don't they. In retrospect she pushed herself on when she was sick, that's what we do....she was punished for it.
    At least she can rest now, lets hope her health can improve too.
