An “act of kindness” that cost an NHS worker her job has left her feeling suicidal while working on an appeal.

Lynne Kings, 53, has been discharged from Birmingham Women’s Hospital after accessing the system to find out which ward her son’s ex-girlfriend – who had just given birth – was on.

The following week she was called to say that a complaint had been made which the hospital was investigating.

Shortly thereafter, she was dismissed from her role as multidisciplinary team coordinator for gynecologic cancer, ending her 15-year career with the NHS.

Lynne has “held her hands up” but is appealing the decision.

she said Birmingham Live : “I just think that I really got a wrongful dismissal and I feel like it was kicked in the teeth.

The mother says she checked the system to find the hospital room where her son’s ex-girlfriend was



She says she can’t afford any more bills once she’s released



“I’ve worked for the NHS for 15 years and after that I basically get a kick in the face. I have suicidal thoughts, I take sleeping pills, I take antidepressants. It was a nightmare, they ruined my life.

“I put my hands up for what I did, I apologized. My heart went before my head. It was really an act of kindness,” said Ms Kings, who worked for the NHS for 15 years.

“I was told she was pregnant with a new partner, which I was so happy about. She was like a daughter to me. All I did was check what ward she was on, I went and bought her a gift from the nursery and I just walked in.

“I told her, ‘I’m really happy for you.’ I didn’t touch the baby just told her how beautiful the baby is.

“I was never suspended, they expected me to work until the evening and then they fired me.”

The mother is appealing the NHS’ decision



Mrs. Kings, from Rowley Regis, She had to cancel a vacation with her husband because she couldn’t afford the payments.

As a result of her layoff, she took a significant pay cut when she was forced to take a job as a general medicine receptionist instead.

She “I worked through the pandemic, it was appalling.”

“I’m in arrears, I can’t afford to pay.

“They left me high and dry. I really feel let down.

“I went to an appeals process but they keep messing me up with dates. I just feel frustrated.”

A Trust spokesman said: “The confidentiality of our patients and their medical records is of the utmost importance.

“We will always investigate any potential violations of this policy and act in accordance with our Trust procedures to protect patients in our care.

“To protect patient confidentiality, we cannot comment on the details of this case.”
