A SOCIAL worker from Powys faces a fitness to practice hearing this week after being accused of disclosing confidential information.

Michele Hillman is set to appear before the Social Care Wales hearing having been accused of revealing confidential information about a colleague’s disciplinary proceedings to another colleague.

Ms Hillman is also accused of failing to adequately assess a student social worker by signing off records and reports she is alleged to have known were inaccurate and misleading.

The two-day hearing is set to take place at Social Care Wales’s Cardiff office from 9.30am on September 4.
