The Regulatory Division
The Regulatory team acts for many regulatory bodies
involved in the field of professional discipline, primarily in the
health sector but, increasingly, more widely. The work largely
involves presenting cases but also requires managing an
investigatory caseload where it is alleged that the registrant's
fitness to practise is impaired through misconduct, competence or
health issues and preparing those cases for hearings before panels
and committees of the relevant regulators.
