London, Nov 06 (ANI): A Brit psychiatric nurse who gave a patient topless massages during a four-month affair has been struck off.

Anne Rogers-Hughes had sex with a 42-year-old patient male patient twice a week at his Shropshire home, the court heard.

The patient, who was injured in a motorcycle accident and suffered from depression, had been her landlord and they met again when he was referred to North-West Shropshire's Community Mental Health Team in May 2007 suffering from depression.

"She was big girl, and I didn't find her attractive," the Daily Mail quoted the patient as saying.

Striking Rogers-Hughes off, panel chairman Lesley White said her actions with the patient, described as "Service User A" were "unworthy of a nurse".

"Her actions impacted not only on Service User A but also his family and partner.

"The registrant has shown little insight into the impact that a sexual relationship would have on the health and well-being of a vulnerable patient and his family.

"This was not an isolated incident, the relationship was maintained over a period of months. Moreover, the behaviour was deliberate," said White.

Rogers-Hughes was found guilty of engaging in a sexual relationship with Service User A between July and October 2007 and failing to notify managers of the affair. (ANI)
