Raising a concern about a professional on our Register

This section provides information on how to raise a concern about a professional on our Register (registrant)


Anyone can contact us and raise a concern about a registrant. This includes members of the public, employers, the police and other professionals.

We will not normally take further action if information is provided anonymously (where the person providing us with the information does not give their name). This is because we want to operate a fair and clear process and we cannot go back and ask for more information if we do not know who has contacted us. However, as our main function is to protect the public, this means that if information given anonymously relates to serious and credible concerns about a registrant's fitness to practise, we may consider taking further action.

We can investigate concerns relating to events which occurred at any time however we will not normally proceed with concerns that are made more than five years after the events giving rise to them. This is because it is better if we are told about concerns as close to the events as possible. This will make sure we can get the best possible evidence and can contact people who are able to remember events easily
