A sanction is a form of restriction that can be placed on a registrant of RWPN.  It is only imposed once a Professional Conduct Panel has identified that a registrant is not currently fit to be on the professional register, or can only remain on the register with certain conditions or certain limitations on their practice.  The purpose of a sanction is to protect the public and to uphold the reputation and standards of the profession.   The purpose of a sanction is not to punish the registrant but to enable them to return to safe practice with the public where this possible.   RWPN will publish on this page, the names of any registrants  for whom a sanction has been issued (and their sanction), and these names will remain published for as long as the sanction is in place.

At this time, no registrant of RWPN is subject to any sanctions.

Interim Suspension Orders

It may be the case that allegations made against a registrant are of such a serious nature that RWPN must act in order to protect the public while investigations are ongoing. An interim order is a safeguarding measure and does not indicate that the registrant is guilty, but is in place until we are able to conduct a full investigation.

There are currently no Interim Suspension Orders.

Sharing Information about our Sanctions

RWPN is a signatory to the Accredited Registers' Information Sharing Protocol.  This protocol allows signatory organisations to share information about any decisions to remove someone from their register and it allows this information to be shared with all other signatory accredited registers.  The information that we share will only be that which is in the public domain and relates only to a situation where one of our registrants has been removed from our register as the result of a complaints proceedings.  This principle of mutual recognition is to improve public protection and also to ensure consistency in the way data is handled among the signatory organisations.
