Where the new information has led to a new referral, and an interim order is in place, we will inform the panel of the interim order. Putting all appropriate information before substantive order review panels makes sure that the public, and the wider public interest, are protected. Where the new matters are not admitted, a panel should apply caution in how it considers those matters in the review.

Difficulties may arise where the interim order is more restrictive than the substantive order being reviewed. A panel will still undertake a full review of the substantive order and the nurse or midwife’s current fitness to practise, so that the public, and the wider public interest, are protected. In such cases a substantive order should not be changed just to mirror the interim order.
