Fitness to practise annual report 2013

This report covers the period 1st April 2012 to 31st March 2013. It explores the effects of HCPC's new responsibility as the regulator of social workers in England, which has resulted, in part, to an increase of 44 per cent in the number of complaints received.

It also includes information on research commissioned on the understanding of public protection which looked at perceptions of fitness to practise, specifically whether/how views differed on what information might be relevant to the regulator.
