Temporary Orders

This page includes information about Temporary Order decisions made by Fitness to Practise Panel hearings and decisions made by SSSC officers.

Temporary Orders suspend a worker's registration and/or impose conditions on their registration while we investigate the allegations against them. We list current Temporary Order decisions below.

About Temporary Orders

Fitness to Practise investigations and decisions are not about punishing workers. Our role is to protect people who use services and maintain public confidence in the workforce. If we impose a Temporary Order this is because we have received information which, on the face of it, suggests a worker’s conduct, professional practice or health may present a risk of harm to people who use services or the public, or we feel that temporary action is necessary to uphold public confidence in the profession or it is in the worker’s interests. In these cases, a Temporary Order restricting the worker’s practice may be required while we investigate.

The imposition of a Temporary Order is not an indication that the conduct took place but a protective measure while we investigate.

Our legal duties and responsibilities differ from the employer so our view of risk and the action we take may be different.
