Hearing Outcomes


Fitness to Practise decisions can be made by the Fitness to Practise (FtP) Committee or by consensual disposal.  The FtP Committee is made up of independent panel members who make decisions on the allegations, based on the evidence presented, at private and public hearings, whereas consensual disposal decisions  are made outside of a hearing environment and usually with the agreement of the Registrant.  To find out more about when it might be appropriate to make a final decision through consensual disposal rather than a hearing see the Consensual Disposal Guidance.

Active and archived decisions taken under the Fitness to Practise Rules (and previous Conduct Rules) are available in the table below. A copy of the decisions is available online for a set time period according to our Disclosure Policy for Hearings & Decisions.
