Sanctions imposed

Susan Atkin, Edinburgh – 23 November 2015
Eighteen allegations of breach of the UKCP Ethical Principles and Professional Code of Conduct found proved. The Panel concluded there was a finding of impaired fitness to practise by reason of misconduct and the registrant was instructed to apologise to the client in addition to undergoing twelve months of structured supervision. Read the decision here.

Interim orders

Sometimes the allegations made against our registrants are of such a serious nature that UKCP must act in order to protect the public whilst investigations are on-going. An interim order does not indicate that the registrant is guilty, but rather is a safeguarding measure that is put in place until a full investigation is able to be conducted. Interim orders are reviewed periodically and are generally in place until the date of the Fitness to Practise hearing.

No interim orders at present.
