The research uses a mix of methods; interviews, a survey, observations, analysis of documents about the fitness to practise process in 6 regulators and working with their regulator, the Professional Standards Authority.

The research will examine the experiences of patient/ family/ and colleague witnesses in the different stages of FtP processes; analyse the resources and support services provided by regulators for witnesses and the public; identify if and how these could be improved; co-develop, and co-design ‘good practice’ guidance and resources for a range of stakeholders, namely the public, regulators, health and social care employers, and regulated practitioners.
