Fitness To Practice Time scale and Thresholds

We're waiting for champ christen to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Health and Care Professions Council,

Your Website and documentation States you aim to:

Have a case considered by the Investigating Committee within eight months of receipt of a concern (if the concern meets our threshold)

I can understand you have a lot to do but the HCPC gets 8+ Months to build a case and the Registrant only get 28 days to Respond, where is the balance of fairness?

Do you log case hours and are the case hour available to the accused?

A lot of the documents and your web mention threshold criteria is this criterion available to everyone?

How does the threshold work, it's based on a set of KPI's or markers or is it the judgement and therefore opinion of the case manager?

The GDPR and DPA give every person the right to information held about them, as the HCPC isn't listed in SCHEDULE 7 of the DPA are Registrant permitted, to obtain information from you during the investigation including the reasons why they have meet the threshold for investigation.?

Yours faithfully,

champ christen
