 Fake Nurse Pleads Guilty and Gets a Suspended Sentence for Two Years

Denise Stewart, a former healthcare assistant who posed as a registered nurse for six years has been found guilty of eight charges of fraud, deception and forgery.

Judge Jeremy Carey criticized Stewart for breaching the trust. He imposed an imprisonment for 20 months and suspended his sentence for 2 years.


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 74,000.
