Impact statements

Jan 18, 2022 | Resources, Templates

The criminal justice system has used impact statements for a while now.

Although they are rarely used in civil cases such as those occurring in regulation, the NMC is starting to use impact statements from relatives of patients and patients themselves.

You can also use Impact Statements as part of an appeal to explain to the judge the effect the sanction has had on your personal and professional life so as to give them some context when considering the proportionality of your FtP investigation.
