HCPC registrants facing HCPC investigations should seek professional legal advice as soon as possible. Such investigations can have long-lasting consequences for the registrant’s career, but expert HCPC lawyers, like those at the MedicAssistanceScheme, can work with you to achieve the best outcome for you.
Interim Orders & Your Career
Before undergoing the full extent of an HCPC fitness to practise hearing, you may have an HCPC Interim Orders Hearing. In this hearing, the committee will determine the extent to which you can continue to practise until the outcome of the investigation is decided upon.
The MedicAssistanceScheme’s lawyers have a successful track record in defending HCPC professionals in Interim Orders Hearings. Given the importance of your career, we will prepare a strong defence with the aim of allowing you to continue practising whilst the investigation is ongoing.
Fitness to Practise & Criminal Cases
Our talented team of HCPC lawyers are highly experienced in representing our clients in both HCPC Fitness to Practise investigations and criminal proceedings. In the case of a member of the public or the police bringing allegations against you that lead to an investigation into your fitness to practise, we will advise you on how to proceed with the case, and we will represent you before the HCPC’s committee to secure you the best possible outcome. After a free initial consultation, our fees are completely transparent, and, in most cases, fixed, so you never have to worry about how much you are having to pay.
If you are subject to a criminal investigation, we are able to represent you in the police station for any interviews under caution, and in both the Magistrates’ Court and the Crown Court. Our lawyers understand that such proceedings can have a significant impact on both your personal and your private life, so throughout the investigation we will give you as much support as you need, as well as doing everything we can to protect your standing before the HCPC.
If you are looking for more information regarding the HCPC and their investigations, our regulatory bodies section has specific information on a number of different areas.
If, however, you know that you are the subject of an HCPC investigation, we strongly recommend contacting us as soon as possible for a free consultation, so that we can advise you on how best to proceed immediately.
