Allegation

Finding

Preliminary Matters

Hearing to be heard in private

1. Ms Bagott, on behalf of the HCPC, invited the Panel to consider whether the whole of the hearing should be held in private, given that the hearing was to be held before a Panel of the Health Committee and that the evidence to be adduced related primarily to the Registrant’s health. The Registrant agreed with the proposal that the entirety of the hearing should be heard in private.

2. Having heard and accepted the advice of the Legal Assessor, the Panel decided that it was justified to hold the entirety of the hearing in private in order to protect the private life of the Registrant. The Panel had regard to the fact that it had been convened as a Panel of the Health Committee; that the allegation faced by the Registrant was that her fitness to practise is impaired by reason of her health; and that the evidence to be adduced primarily related to her health. The Panel considered that it was important that the Registrant felt safe and able to talk openly about her health. In these circumstances, the Panel determined that the information was of such a sensitive and personal nature that it should not be in the public domain, and that since such information was inextricably linked to all matters relating to this case, no part of the hearing should be in public. As such, this is the redacted public copy of the private decision.
