Fitness to practice

If you are student in the School of Health Sciences, you must to meet the standard code of conduct set by your Health Professional Body.  If the University is alerted to, or has any concern of your conduct, character or your health interfering with your practice you might be called to meet your Programme Leader or Head of Division. If concerns further evolve you will be called to a Fitness to Practice Panel. This is to make sure you can undertake your role in a way your Health Professional Body views as safely and effectively. Being called to a Fitness to Practice Panel can be a very uncertain time, this is why your Students’ Union staff will always advise you and support you through the full procedure.
