Case review stage

A guide intended to help answer questions about the fitness to practise process and what to expect.

If you get a conditions of practice or suspension order

Last updated: 27 January 2021

If you have accepted conditions of practice or a suspension order from the case examiners or had conditions of practice or a suspension order imposed from the adjudicators, you will be supported by our case review team.

Your case review officer will be your main point of contact following a fitness to practise outcome.

The case review team will monitor your compliance with your conditions of practice or suspension order for its duration. Shortly after your order has taken effect, your allocated case review officer will make contact with you to support you with that process.

Your case review officer cannot alter the decision made but will be there to guide you through your remediation back to unrestricted practice where possible.

Remediation is the process of remedying the concerns that were identified. To fully achieve this, you need to demonstrate that you understand:

  • the risk you posed to people and to the reputation of the social work profession
  • and comply with the actions you need to take to ensure those concerns do not arise again in the future

Case review officers set deadlines for you to submit evidence and can help explain the conditions or suspension order. Remediation is your responsibility and your case review officer is there to help you stay on track and signpost you to guidance documents and other resources.
