Template letter re NMC Legal Teams

Apr 18, 2021 | Resources

If you are unhappy about a solicitor ( case presenter or legal assessor ) you have come across during your NMC process you can complain about their conduct. One of our group, Paul Golden, who set up the organisation Human Rights Action ( HRA )  has drafted a template letter that you can use.

  5. [name] did this by stating that
    1. the registrant had received a bundle of complaint documents despite having clear documentation that the registrant did not receive the documents.
    2. There is clear paper trail of evidence showing how the registrant requested information from the NMC,
    3. made several subject access requests (SAR) (FOI),
    4. The registrant requested information to be made available without encryption / passwords that were preventing them accessing the documents.
  6. [NAME] did not fact check or verify information that was presented by (a vexatious) complainant. That and other acts and omissions amount to dishonest unprofessional conduct.
