Shetland nurse faces 'intimidation' claim

A nurse faces a misconduct hearing over accusations she was "aggressive" and "intimidating" to two "vulnerable" patients in Shetland.

Giak Siau Abernethy was working at Gilbert Bain Hospital when the incident is alleged to have happened in 2014.

She faces other allegations about patient medications, and her fitness to practise is said to have been impaired by misconduct.

Ms Abernethy faces a Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing next month.
