As meetings are held in private our notices do not contain all of the same information as a notice of hearing.

The notice contains a charge that sets out the allegations in detail and includes any documents or evidence that we have not already sent to the nurse or midwife. In the notice, we will ask the nurse or midwife to respond to these allegations within 28 days and inform them that any admissions they make will be considered by the panel considering their case.

We will also tell the nurse or midwife of the possible actions that the panel may take at the hearing. This includes the panel’s power to make an interim order and the sanctions that it may impose on the nurse or midwife if their fitness to practise is found impaired .

As with the notice of hearing, we send a notice of final, substantive order review or restoration meeting to the nurse or midwife. We send this no later than 28 days before the meeting is held. We do not inform the nurse or midwife of the exact date the meeting will be held. However, we tell the nurse or midwife of the earliest date it could be held, and that in the case of a substantive order review, the meeting will be held before the substantive order expires. A notice of substantive order review meeting contains a copy of the order made against the nurse or midwife at the final hearing and the panel’s reasons for making that order.
