1. On the 26 November 2009 altered slide number 22031 to 22037 and did not recognise that the tissue type on this slide did not match that described on the request form which could have resulted in a patient being diagnosed with the condition of another patient.

6. Demonstrated repeated poor performance even after a period of supervised practice.

7. Generated three adverse incident reports in regards to clinical near misses.
