Committed to Protecting what matters most.

Often you are working in very difficult circumstances under immense pressure from a range of sources. You are contacting us during very difficult times, you want clear answers to the important and potentially life changing questions facing you.

We will do everything we can to robustly protect you. We can help you at any stage in your matter though we would strongly recommend that you contact us as soon as an issue arises so we can give you advice on what to disclose and when. There will be occasions where early disclosure of information is advisable to swiftly dispose of an investigation and other matters where it may detrimentally prejudice your defence later in the process.

Fitness to practise investigations cover a wide range of scenarios. Cases involve diagnostic, surgical, administrative or prescribing errors. Dishonest or misleading behaviour; criminal cautions and convictions; sexually motivated behaviour; breaching patient or colleague trust or confidentiality. Or your health may be impairing your work, be that a physical or psychological condition or dependency issue. The advice we give therefore depends on the facts of your case and we will carefully listen to you to understand your circumstances.
