Professional Disciplinary

Health and social care providers who are also registered as nurses or doctors often have to deal with a two-pronged attack from regulators because they may have to deal with criticisms from both the provider regulator, such as the CQC, as well as from professional regulators, such as the General Medical Council (GMC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). There is also greater emphasis now on regulators sharing information between bodies. This means that provider regulators and professional regulators are likely to refer matters to each other where appropriate.

When dealing with any form of disciplinary procedure, things can get difficult and complicated. If you do have to deal with both a professional regulator alongside your provider regulator, Ridouts team of specialist lawyers can advise on both aspects as each is likely to impact on the other.
