A PARAMEDIC who stalked her boss – forcing her to resign - while based at a Welwyn Garden City ambulance station has been struck off.

Kay Bussey took to parking outside her area manager's house and bombarding her with text messages and phone calls after becoming demoralised about work.

Her boss said the only way she could rid herself of the woman's attentions was to quit her job.

The Health Professions Council (HPC) heard Bussey started leaving hand written notes on the victim’s desk at Welwyn Garden City Ambulance Station in Ascots Lane.

She also pestered her to go out after work and suggested they go away together for a weekend.

The victim, referred to as NT throughout the hearing which ended yesterday, finally contacted police in November 2005 when her partner noticed Bussey sitting in a car outside their home.

Bussey was transferred to another unit in Letchworth, but the harassment continued forcing the victim to quit her job in April 2007.

When confronted about the stalking, the paramedic claimed NT was following her.

Bussey, of Enfield, was found guilty of nine charges of inappropriate behaviour towards a colleague while working for the Beds & Herts Ambulance Service, now the East of England Ambulance Service, between February and October 2005.

HPC chairman Dr Alexander Yule said Bussey's behaviour was clearly inappropriate and had a "deletrious effect" on her colleagues.

He said she failed to maintain high standards of personal conduct, failed to behave with integrity and damaged the profession's reputation.

Bussey did not attend the hearing but denied the charges against her or that her fitness to practice is impaired.
