A WOMAN pretended she was a doctor to help a man who fell off an electric bike, a court heard.

Joanne Graham, 47, cut off Martin Jones’ clothing to exam injuries to his head and a broken wrist.

She also had a clipboard in Corwen, North Wales, last June.

Graham told cops that people assumed she was a medic after she said she was in mountain rescue.

She denied falsely using the title of doctor but was found guilty by JPs in Llandudno and was fined £600 with £810 costs.

Graham denied falsely using the title of a doctor under the Medical Act 1983.

Llandudno Magistrates’ Court heard she had been a member of a search and rescue team and held a casualty care certificate until it expired in 2019.

Graham was found guilty

The prosecution sought £70 compensation for Mr Jones’s jacket which he believed was “unnecessarily” cut from him by Graham.

The defence said there was no delay in him attending hospital and Graham didn’t gain anything by the offence.

A £600 fine was imposed and Graham, who has no previous convictions, must pay £810 costs.
