‘Compassionate’ Worthing chiropodist dies aged 74
Steve Hardie failed to treat a patient appropriately and was rude to co-habiting male patients – on the basis that he believed all were gay. Mr Hardie also initially refused to go into a clinic with a gay colleague at Peterborough Community Services. The Health Professions Council (HPC) found all misconduct allegations, from 2005 to 2009, proved. The HPC’s Conduct and Competence Committee heard Mr Hardie had asked a work colleague to swap a patient because he had discovered he was HIV positive. ‘Highly offensive’ The chiropodist also failed to declare he was carrying out private podiatry work in Peterborough. The panel heard Mr Hardie, who had been given an interim suspension in February 2011, had not provided the panel with testimonials and references to demonstrate he had addressed his misconduct. He still denied the allegations and had nothing further to submit to the panel, it was told. “Mr Hardie’s attitude with patients and colleagues of homosexual orientation was unacceptable and highly offensive, both to the persons concerned and to the wider public,” the panel stated. “He has shown no insight or remorse and very little conduct to remedy his behaviour, which took place over a considerable period of time.” The suspension order will be reviewed before its expiry.

Peterborough homophobic chiropodist suspended
Alan Johnstone, of Watersfield Road, Worthing, practised as a chiropodist for 32 years, having retrained after a career in the Medical Corps in the Army and as a microbiologist for GlaxoSmithKline. He died on Thursday in his home after a battle with lung cancer. Despite being terminally ill, Alan had continued to see patients a week before he died. His wife, Gabrielle, said: He was determined to fight on and he didnt want to let his patients down. He used to say he loved it when someone hobbled in and floated out. Mrs Johnstone said Alan would often work all days and hours of the week, regardless of the time or occasion. She said: Sometimes he would get a call at 3am from an elderly patient who was confused and thought it was 3pm. He would usually gently persuade them it was the morning and tell them he would see them later. But sometimes he would get out of bed and visit them then. He would never get annoyed at them. He was very kind. An inquistive mind with a desire to learn, Alans interests included classical music and the arts, railway history and architecture, photography and horses, and even snakes. Whilst training to become a chiropodist, Alan also studied for a history degree with the Open University during his train journey commute from Worthing to London.
