The Public Support Service ensures that patients, carers, and the public are supported throughout the fitness to practise process.

Public support meetings

If you've raised concerns about someone on our register and we decide to investigate, our Public Support Officers are there to support you.

They can meet with you, explain what happens next, listen to you, make sure we have all the information we need and explain any decisions we make.

Reasonable adjustments and accessible information

If you need a specific type of support or an adjustment we're more than happy to help.

Please let us know as soon as possible so we can make sure we have the right arrangements in place.

We've also produced some accessible information on fitness to practise for people who find reading hard. These are known as 'easy read' guides.
