The information you provide
When we receive information about a clinical physiologist, we have a duty to investigate whether that clinical physiologist might pose a risk to the public or public confidence in the clinical physiology profession. As part of this process, we may need to disclose or share information about your concerns.
How we will handle your information
We value working with you to keep people safe and your ongoing help is important to us.
Sharing your information
We will usually share the details of your concerns and any other supporting information that you provide to the clinical physiologist(s) concerned.
We may also need to share your concerns with other organisations, such as the police or other healthcare regulators/registration bodies.
In the process of investigating your concerns, we may need to share the details of your concerns, and other relevant information that we have gathered, with our fitness to practise committee panel members
Asking for more information
We may need more information about your concerns, for example copies of records from your organisation. We will only ask for information that is relevant to our investigation of your concerns.
If you have any concerns or specific requests about how your information will be used, please tell us now so we can take them into account. We will consider what you say, but we may still have to go ahead and use your information to help protect the public. If that happens, we will tell you as soon as possible.
