Member event: Learning from Complaints

The Professional Conduct Committee plays a key role in enabling UKCP to meet its responsibility to maintain professional standards of excellence. It oversees the Complaints and Conduct Process (CCP). The complaints UKCP receive can range from serious professional misconduct to expressions of dissatisfaction with a service. Whatever the cause or severity, each complaint is an opportunity for learning.

Hosted by the Professional Conduct Committee, this event is open to UKCP members and will give you the opportunity to gain insight into the work of the committee and receive guidance on case law and topical issues. Through a combination of presentations and breakout sessions, you will be able to engage with the team and share learnings to equip you to maintain professional standards of excellence.
