What is fitness to practise?


When we say that a registrant is ‘fit to practise’ we mean that they have the skills, knowledge and character to practise their profession safely and effectively.

However, fitness to practise is not just about professional performance. It also includes acts by a registrant which may affect public protection or confidence in the profession. This may include matters not directly related to professional practice.
