Professor Stephen Hawking's former carer has been banned from nursing after she "failed to provide the standards of good, professional care" that the scientist "deserved".

Patricia Dowdy, 61, had faced multiple misconduct charges about the care she had provided to the world renowned physicist including financial misconduct and dishonesty.

Britain's Nursing and Midwifery Council had previously claimed the secrecy order had been granted due to the nurse's "health".

Prof Hawking died a year ago aged 76 having become one of the most renowned scientists in his field, despite his long battle with motor neurone disease.

'As a result, Mrs Dowdy will no longer be able to practice as a nurse.

The council's Matthew McClelland said the public expects it to take action "in serious cases such as this" in which a nurse has "failed in their duty of care, and has not been able to evidence to the panel that they have learned from their mistakes and be fit to practise".

"As the regulator, we will always listen when concerns about the fitness of nurses, midwives or nursing associates are raised with us so that we can investigate further for the benefit of everyone involved".

Hawking's family and others had shared their concerns with the council, according to the statement released from London.

"They want to thank the NMC for their thorough investigation". He was also director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge.

After catching pneumonia in 1985, Prof Hawking needed around-the-clock care and relied on a computer and voice synthesizer to speak.
