A British court has ruled that a National Health Service (NHS) nurse was rightfully sacked for offering a bible to a cancer patient.

Sarah Kuteh, 50, was fired from her job at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent, in 2016 for also encouraging the terminal patient to sing popular Christian hymn ‘The Lord is My Shepherd’.

The Christian nurse reportedly talked to patients about her faith, in addition to handing out a bible. She was found to be in breach of Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) rules.

Kuteh was sacked after a patient in her care complained about her conduct.

Court documents stated that,”On 20 June 2016, the Complaints Department noted a call from a patient being treated for cancer concerning his assessment by the Claimant on 3 June 2016.

“He had replied ‘open minded’ to the question on the form concerning religion and alleged the Claimant had told him that the only way he could get to the Lord was through Jesus.

“(She) told him she would give him her bible if he did not have one; gripped his hand tightly and said a prayer that was very intense and went ‘on and on’; and asked him to sing Psalm 23 [The Lord is My Shepherd] after which he was so astounded that he had sung the first verse with her.”

This is the nurse’s second attempt at appealing the decision. She is reportedly now liaising with the Christian Legal Centre to see if they will take up her case.
