Former Cumbrian social worker faces conduct hearing

A social worker accused of making lewd comments about his boss and claiming to be sexually excited by a car is facing a hearing this week.

Barry Clifford Lloyd, 54, will face allegations about his fitness to practice based upon court convictions for drink-driving, being drunk and disorderly, harassment and breaching a restraining order.

The charges relate to a period between February 4, 2008 and April 1, 2010, when Lloyd was employed as a social worker by Cumbria County Council.

He will appear in London for a hearing review before the Conduct and Competence Committee of the Health and Care Professions Council on Thursday.

Lloyd faces various charges, the first of which relates to a number of incidents on the same day.

On that day, during a visit to the office of Children’s Services, he is accused of making inappropriate comments about the Director of Children's Services being seen in the gym in her underwear and suspenders, referring to a car as a “pimp mobile” and saying that when he saw the car [it sexually excited him].

During the same visit, Lloyd is alleged to have shared confidential information about both a racism complaint and a Unison meeting, made further inappropriate and insulting comments and smelled of alcohol. The following day he received a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly.

A spokesman for the county council told the News & Star that Mr Lloyd no longer worked for them.
