What we cannot do

We cannot:

  • consider cases about professionals who are not registered with us;
  • consider cases about organisations (we only deal with concerns about individual registrants);
  • get involved in your clinical care or your social care arrangements;
  • reverse decisions of other organisations or bodies;
  • deal with customer-service or consumer issues;
  • get involved in matters which should be decided upon by a court, including dissatisfaction with evidence given at court;
  • get a registrant or organisation to change the content of a report;
  • arrange refunds or compensation;
  • fine a registrant;
  • give legal advice; or
  • make a registrant apologise.
