We know going through a fitness to practise case or investigation can be stressful. Sometimes talking to someone can help if you feel worried or overwhelmed.

We’ve introduced a dedicated wellbeing line for people undergoing fitness to practise investigations. It offers you free and confidential emotional support and practical advice from an independent source.

Call freephone: 0808 169 4430

The wellbeing line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is for anyone under investigation by fitness to practise, whether you are registered or applying for registration.

You don’t need a referral, just pick up the phone and call freephone: 0808 169 4430 (or +44 141 271 7133 if you’re calling from abroad, these calls will be charged at your normal call rate).

How can it help?

The wellbeing line offers:

  • up to three sessions of solution-focused, structured counselling
  • practical information, support and signposting
  • limited support for immediate family members of a single session with a counsellor.

Online support

There is also a free online resource with webinars, wellbeing articles and information on the different support services on offer.
