Fitness to practise

Many students within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health come into contact with the public when undertaking practical training as part of their study.

The Faculty has a duty to ensure that those students are fit to practise and has established a procedure for dealing with student-related fitness to practise issues:

Concerns can be raised by any member of staff, by completing this referral form. Please be aware that any referral for consideration by a Concern Review Panel should be discussed with your Division or School's key contact for Fitness to Practise or a senior Teaching and Learning Manager.

Any issues surrounding professional behaviour should at first be investigated at School level. Only when an internal School investigation has concluded will a Faculty-level Committee on Fitness to Practise consider a case.

Temporary suspensions

On rare occasions, it might be necessary to temporarily suspend a student whilst fitness to practise proceedings are ongoing. For more information, please refer to Paragraph 4 of the Fitness to Practise Procedure.
