Advice on the fitness to practise process and legal advice
If you are a member of a union and/or a professional body, you should contact them. The unions and professional bodies know our fitness to practise process well and are a good source of advice and may be able to offer you legal support if you need it.
Alternatively, you can get your own legal advice, at your own expense.
Emotional support and advice
Having a concern raised against you and going through the fitness to practise process can be a very stressful experience. There are support organisations, such as the Samaritans, which are able to provide you with confidential emotional support should you need it.
You may also wish to speak to your family or peers.
