A HOSPITAL worker has appeared in court accused of stealing money from a patient.
Yvonne Larssen, from Sunderland, has denied taking £10 from the woman.
The 49-year-old healthcare assistant pleaded not guilty to theft, which is alleged to have taken place at Sunderland Royal Hospital on July 13.
A trial will take place at the magistrates’ court on December 20.
Larssen, of Pennycross Road, Pennywell, was released on unconditional bail, following a hearing this week.
