Once we've finished our investigations, the investigator will write a report which will include the evidence we have gathered.
The investigator will send the report and evidence to the nurse, midwife or nursing associate and their professional representative if they have one.
At this stage, by law, we have to give the nurse, midwife or nursing associate 28 days to comment on our findings and the evidence we have gathered. After the 28 days, two case examiners will examine the report, evidence and any comments we receive and decide what happens next.
