We will tell the nurse or midwife, or their representative, what we propose to provide to the panel as the hearing bundle, either by sending a copy of the bundle, or an index listing the documents (of which they have already been provided with a copy). This allows the nurse or midwife the opportunity to object to any documents or request further material be added to the bundle.

Due to this, the content of the hearing bundle may change through the preparation of the case.

Where an objection to a document is raised and agreement cannot be reached between the parties as to whether that document should be included in the bundle, the document will not be included. If, following argument before the panel, the document is admissible it will be exhibited separately.
