Just disposal of transfer cases policy

Just disposal of transfer cases policy


From 2 December 2019 Social Work England will deal with concerns about the fitness to practise of social workers.

The Health Care Professional Council (HCPC) will pass to Social Work England all concerns about social workers which it is investigating and/or it has passed to any of the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service’s (HCPTS) panels.

Social Work England will need to determine how these cases should proceed and ensure that they are handled in a risk based, just and proportionate manner.
