Our Ref. FR06394

 

 

Dear Champ Christen

 

Thank you for your email of 20 September 2019, in which you ask for
information in relation to reasonable adjustments given to registrants who
are responding to fitness to practise allegations.

 

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA).

 

We do routinely make reasonable adjustments for stakeholders who are
involved in our fitness to practise process. However, the precise form of
those adjustments will vary with the circumstances of the individual
seeking those adjustments. These adjustments are typically agreed between
the Case Manager and the concerned party.

 

Advocates can often play a role in overcoming the types of access issues
outlined in your email. 

 

In determining what reasonable adjustments might be made, a Case Manager
would consult the Health and Care Professions Council’s ‘Making reasonable
adjustments for HCPC customers and stakeholders’ guidance. This document
outlines to HCPC employees:

 

·         “what reasonable adjustments for customers and stakeholder are;

·         where reasonable adjustments are needed;

·         what to take into account when considering making reasonable
adjustments; and

·         where to access additional resources for more support”.

 

Please find attached a copy of this guidance, for ease of reference.

 

Guidance for current registrants who have a health condition or disability
is available on our website at

For professionals not yet registered with us, our guide on health,
disability & becoming a health and care professional is available on our
