How we manage cases before a hearing

Reference: FTP-8

Last Updated 26/11/2018

After the case examiners have made the decision to send the case to the Fitness to Practise Committee, our legal team will review it.

They may decide that there needs to be further investigation before it is passed to the committee. 

Once the investigation is complete, we'll prepare for a hearing or meeting.

Where the nurse or midwife is represented, we'll consider whether to arrange a telephone conference with the representative to discuss the proposed hearing bundle and resolve any legal difficulties.
