Code of Ethics and Conduct

Disciplinary Codes
In the event of a complaint arising, it is first looked at by a 'screener' who is a member of the Association. An adviser is appointed to assist the person making the complaint. The screener explains the procedure to the complainant and sees if the complaint can be resolved by discussion or mediation. If not then he/she asks for the complaint in writing and a written response from the practitioner. He/she then asks any questions necessary to clarify the matter and sends the documents to the Investigating Committee. This committee has to find out the facts and decide if there is a case to answer, and in some cases has the authority to settle the complaint itself. If there is a case to answer the committee passes it on either to the Health Committee, in cases where physical or mental fitness to practise is at issue, or to the Professional Conduct Committee in all other cases. Where either committee decides the allegation is well founded it has a range of remedies to fit the circumstances. Members have a right of appeal, which would be heard by a separate Appeals Committee.
