Denise Stewart had used the identity of a nurse, Amaya Lloyd-Johnson who had moved to Canada without informing the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Stewart had worked at four Medway general procedure surgeries and had carried out numerous vaccinations and smear tests using the fake identity.

The fraud was brought to light by her employer at the Brecon Medical Centre in South Wales and NMC cancelled her registration in 2011.

Stewart's crime had earned her nearly Ģ74,000.
