NHS worker who shouted 'Nazi scum' at Trump supporter quits job

Siobhan Prigent has left her role at the NHS following the confrontation

Friday, June 7, 2019

An NHS worker filmed shouting "Nazi scum" at a Trump supporter has quit her job.

Thirty-four-year-old Siobhan Prigent, who worked at University College Hospital (UCLH), was protesting the president's state visit to the UK this week when the incident occurred.

She appeared to laugh as the male Trump fan - who was wearing a 'Make America Great Again' hat - was then jostled by fellow protesters before being covered in milkshake in London's Parliament Square.

A petition calling for her to be sacked garnered over 3,000 signatures after the footage was shared widely.

Ms Prigent posted on Twitter that she was "very sorry" for her behaviour, before deleting all her social media accounts.

"I am very sorry for my behaviour today. I should have protested peacefully & I didn’t & I regret that," she wrote.

"I’ve let myself down & I do understand that fully. There are two sides to every story, but my actions were my own, & that’s on me. Please leave my family & friends out of it."

She has now left her role at the NHS, reportedly to protect the reputation of the service.

A spokesman for UCLH told the MailOnline: "Ms Prigent has today informed us that she will no longer be working at UCLH because she does not want us or the NHS to suffer any more negative attention.

"She had been at UCLH for a week. As an NHS trust, we pride ourselves on treating our patients and colleagues with kindness and compassion in all that we do."
