Paramedic suspended for nine months on grounds of his conviction/ Atal parafeddyg o'i waith am naw mis oherwydd ei euogfarn

05/01/2017

Paramedic suspended / Atal parafeddyg

Paramedic Gary Evans has been suspended for a period of nine months on grounds of his conviction of inflicting grievous bodily harm whilst employed for the Welsh Ambulance Service.

A panel of the HCPC Conduct and Competence Committee heard that an incident took place at Mr Evan’s home on 26 September 2015, following which he was charged with assault of Person A and convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm, contrary to Section 20 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861.

The Panel further heard that on 9 November 2015, at Cardiff Crown Court, Mr Evans was sentenced to 10 months’ imprisonment, suspended for 18 months , with a restraining order; requirements to carry out 250 hours of unpaid work; 25 days of rehabilitation activity; and to pay costs and a victim surcharge.

Panel Chair Brian Wroe commented:

“The Panel was of the view that the nature and circumstances of the offence are very serious. The Panel was satisfied that nine months sufficiently marked the seriousness of the case, gave Mr Evans long enough to remedy matters and would result in a review taking place after the expiry of the criminal sentence.”

The Panel concluded to suspend the name of Gary Evans for a period of 9 months from the 10 January 2017 with an interim order to cover the appeal period. The order will be reviewed again before its expiry on 11 October 2017.

Gary Evans was present and represented by Mr Andrew Jones, a Lay Representative.

Mae’r parafeddyg Gary Evans wedi’i atal o’i waith am gyfnod o naw mis oherwydd ei euogfarn am beri niwed corfforol difrifol tra’r oedd yng nghyflogaeth Gwasanaeth Ambiwlans Cymru.

Clywodd panel o Bwyllgor Ymddygiad a Chymhwysedd Y Cyngor Proffesiynau Iechyd a Gofal fod yna ddigwyddiad wedi bod yng nghartref Mr Evans ar y 26ain o Fedi, 2015, ac yn dilyn hynny, cafodd ei gyhuddo o ymosod ar Berson A a’i euogfarnu o beri niwed corfforol difrifol, yn groes i Adran 20 Deddf Troseddau Corfforol 1861.

Clywodd y Panel hefyd fod Mr Evans ar y 9fed o Dachwedd, 2015, yn Llys y Goron Caerdydd wedi’i ddedfrydu i 10 mis o garchar, wedi’i ohirio am 18 mis, â gorchymyn atal; rheidrwydd i wneud 250 awr o waith di-dâl; 25 niwrnod o weithgareddau adsefydlu; a thalu costau a gordal dioddefwyr.

Dywedodd Cadeirydd y Panel, Brian Wroe:

“Barn y Panel oedd bod natur ac amgylchiadau’r drosedd yn ddifrifol iawn.  Roedd y Panel yn fodlon fod naw mis yn nodi difrifoldeb yr achos yn ddigonol, ac yn rhoi digon o amser i Mr Evans unioni pethau, a byddai’n arwain at gynnal adolygiad ar ôl i’r ddedfryd droseddol ddirwyn i ben.”

Casglodd y Panel y dylid gwahardd enw Gary Evans am gyfnod o 9 mis o’r 10fed o Ionawr, 2017, â gorchymyn dros dro i gwmpasu’r cyfnod apelio.  Adolygir y gorchymyn eto cyn iddo ddirwyn i ben ar yr 11eg o Hydref, 2017.

Roedd Gary Evans yn bresennol ac fe’i cynrychiolwyd gan Mr Andrew Jones, Cynrychiolydd Lleyg.
