Temporary Orders suspend a workers registration and/or impose conditions on their registration until the allegations against them are investigated.
Fitness to Practise investigations and decisions are not about punishing workers. Our role is to protect people who use services and maintain public confidence in the workforce. If we impose Temporary Orders or sanctions it is because we have found evidence of impairment and believe that formal action is needed. A worker's fitness to practise can be impaired because of their conduct, professional practice or health. We consider each case individually. Our legal duties and responsibilities differ from the employer so our view of risk and the action we may take is different.
Please note: Some of the charges and decisions may contain language which some may find offensive.
