Working hard to obtain a professional qualification and securing a professional career are one of the most important achievements for many of us. It gives us stability and respectability in society. However professional life requires continued adherence to codes of conduct both within and beyond the workplace. A breach of the codes can have significant impact on a professional person at work and at home. It is undoubtedly a very difficult time in the life of someone accused of professional wrongdoing.
Doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, teachers, lawyers, social workers, police officers and others must each comply with the standards set by their professional regulatory bodies. Failure to do so may lead to suspension or being struck off a register altogether. Offending behaviour can relate to alleged incompetency or inappropriate or unlawful activities, be this fraud, assault or inappropriate sexual relationships.
