A nurse who tricked a vulnerable pensioner out of more than £2000 is facing jail.

Beverley Henry-Browne, of Addiscombe Road, Croydon was an NHS nurse working out of the Queen Mary Hospital as part of the Community Health Team.

During a period of just under three months last year Henry-Browne, 53, withdrew £2350 from the bank account of a 70-year-old suffering from paranoid schizophrenia she had helped set up.

Appearing at Kingston Crown Court on Friday June 29, the nurse was told she is likely to face a jail term of eight months, after she pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse of position on March 26 this year.
