Nurse's fraud to get hold of drugs
A NURSE has been sacked after admitting she forged patient prescriptions to get a supply of drugs for herself.
Helen Lisa Townson gained access to the personal computer records of patients registered at the surgery in West Street, Somerton, (pictured) and printed out fake prescriptions for hundreds of tablets at a time.
She tried to cover her tracks by deleting the records of the prescriptions afterwards in order to feed her addiction to codeine-based painkillers.
A court heard Townson was caught out after staff at a pharmacy in Ilchester noticed she was often tense and nervous when she came in to collect the prescriptions – saying she was doing it on behalf of patients.
