Re: A mental health nurse has been struck off after allegations he had sex with a patient considered "highly vulnerable" .<br />
Alec James Wallbank was suspended after a panel found it proved that he had sex with a patient who was sectioned under the Mental Health Act. He was later and struck off the nursing register.<br />
Wallbank appeared at Cardiff Crown court last year charged with having sex with the patient, but was cleared of all charges after a judge directed the jury to find him not guilty on two counts and no evidence was offered by prosecutors on the remaining four.<br />
A fitness to practice hearing of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), found the allegations proven using the the "balance of probabilities".<br />
Wallbank worked as a deputy ward manager for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and admitted making contact with the woman on Facebook using a different name and then went on to treat her after she was re-admitted to following a suicide attempt.
