Dear Portch, David (S,G&C),
You have failed to answer questions 234,
Just because you have no complaints from Service users about their Social Worker not being registered with the HCPC, does not mean that you cannot answer the other questions.
I am now requesting a Internal review into the issues you have not complied with.

Yours sincerely,

Alison Stevens
