NURSE QUIZ OVER DEATH OF BAYWATCH SCOT'S MUM; Agony of Keri-Anne


Mckenzie, Steve, Sunday Mail (Glasgow, Scotland)


A COMMUNITY nurse has been suspended after Scots Baywatch star Keri-Anne Telford complained about her mother's treatment.

Health chiefs are probing Anne Anderson's behaviour towards cancer victim Doris Telford, who died earlier this month aged 62.

Keri-Anne, 28 - Pamela Anderson's body double in the American beach saga - had flown home from America to help care for her mum at her home in the fishing village of Portknockie, Morayshire.

But she and other members of the family became concerned at the care Doris was receiving and contacted hospital bosses to complain about Anderson's conduct.

The nurse, based at Spynie Hospital, Elgin, was suspended from duty a week before Doris died and now faces an internal inquiry by her bosses at Grampian Primary Care NHS Trust.

The claims against her are believed to centre on allegations of professional misconduct.

Keri-Anne, her family and the Trust have all declined to discuss the complaint.

Grampian Primary Care refused to reveal details of the inquiry, which could take weeks to complete.

A spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that an auxiliary nurse on the community support team was suspended and an investigation is underway."

Anderson, a 42-year-old mother-of-three, tearfully refused to talk about the allegations levelled against her.

Speaking at her home in Elgin, she said: "You are very much misinformed and I do not wish to talk to you."

A divorcee, she split from her ambulance driver husband five years ago.

New Zealand-born Keri-Anne put her acting career in the US on hold and jetted to Scotland to be with her dying mum after she was diagnosed with cancer of the mouth, throat and neck.

She helped nurse mum-of-three Doris at home, in between frequent visits to hospital.

But she later asked for the help of a nurse to give her a break and allow her to catch up on sleep.
