Telford social worker William Goodwillie removed from register

A social worker accused of misconduct in dealing with children's cases in Shropshire has voluntarily removed himself from his professional register.

William Goodwillie, formerly of Telford and Wrekin Council, will no longer face disciplinary action, the Health and Care Professions Council said.

He was accused of failing to conduct an assessment on a child who had a repeated pattern of head injuries.

He was also accused of failing to keep accurate records for other cases.

The Health and Care Professions Council said it had withdrawn action against Mr Goodwillie "on the basis that he wishes to be removed from the HCPC Register voluntarily",

In a statement it said: "Mr Goodwillie has admitted the allegation in full and has undertaken not to practise as a social worker or use the title associated with that profession.

"If Mr Goodwillie seeks to return to the HCPC Register at any time in the future, the application would be treated as if he had been struck off as a result of the allegation."
