Usually, a witness involved in our cases would be someone who uses care and support, a colleague of the person being investigated, or a family member of someone who uses care and support.
You may have been asked by one of our case officers to be a witness for us to help with our case evidence. Sometimes we ask people who’ve given us a witness statement to attend a fitness to practise hearing. We understand that being a witness can be stressful. You might be worried about what you’ll say in your witness interview, whether you’ll be able to answer the questions, or how being a witness may affect your personal or work relationships.
We want to help make it easier for you to understand the process and what you’ll need to do.
The case officer will explain the process to you, but you may feel you want some additional support.
