If Someone Raises a Concern About You

If a fitness to practise allegation is made about you, you can expect us to treat you fairly and to explain what will happen at each step of the process. We will keep you up-to-date with the progress of our investigation and we will give you the contact details of an Case Manager, who you can contact if you have any questions.

The Case Manager will gather any relevant information required and will act as a contact for everyone involved in the case, explain how the process works and what will be considered when a decision is made.

The Case Manager cannot provide advice on what you should include in your responses or how you should represent yourself. You may want to get advice from your union (if you are a member), your professional body (if you have one) or through the Citizen’s Advice service. You can also seek advice from a solicitor.

You should also be aware of our published LSI Credentialing Register Standards when we consider Fitness to Practise cases.

Assessing Fitness to Practise

Concerns and complaints about an LSI registrant are handled in accordance with the LSI’s Fitness to Practise Rules.

Actions and Sanctions

Where there is a finding of impairment against your fitness to practise, the LSI Registration Council will publish the details of the notice of decision on the Actions and Sanctions page of its website.

The Council will also notify the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) under the terms for its accredited credentialing register, and may at any time provide a copy of the notice of decision to any regulatory body or interested third party if it is in the interest of justice and the public to so do.

Restoration

Applications for restoration to the register shall be made in writing to the Registrar.

The details of the restoration process is set out in the Restoration Rules.
