About Disciplinary Procedures in the Statutory Professions

Various disciplinary and regulatory bodies have different rules, powers and procedures, even while sharing a basic legal framework. This book allows a practitioner who is appearing before such a body to prepare their case by setting out what powers the body has, what evidence it can hear, the form the procedure will take, whether they can call witnesses, and what sanctions it can impose.

This book was the first title to consider the specific question of the regulation of statutory professions in Ireland including architects, surveyors, teachers, pharmacists, health and social care professionals and accountants.

Part I deals with general principles and practice, covering such areas as complaints, fair procedures and sanctions.
Part II examines each of the relevant professions in turn.

Covers the following developments, legislation and case law:

The difference of between poor conduct and poor performance;
Teaching Council (Amendment) Act 2015
Healthcare (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2017
Corbally v Medical Council & Others
Lohan-Mannion case
TM v Medical Council
