Ambulance worker struck off for groping student

An East of England Ambulance Service worker has been struck off after inappropriate behaviour towards a student. 

David Glenton, who acted as the student paramedic mentor between 2016 and 2017, touched the student’s bottom when moving behind her in an ambulance. 

It was not until the first-year student described his language and behaviour to friends that she realised, “this wasn’t normal” and was not part of ambulance culture, the tribunal heard.

Witnesses for Mr Glenton said they did not see any bullying or inappropriate behaviour by him, and nor did the student appear to be scared.

She ended up dropping out due to health related issues that resulted from Mr Glentons conduct. 

He was found guilty of sexual misconduct and abuse of his professional position by the Health and Care Professions Tribunals Service.
