Adjudication Findings

The Society of Homeopaths aims to publish within seven working days of a decision the names of those members in respect of whom it has investigated allegations and found the allegations to be well founded. It will also publish alongside the finding both the section(s) of the Code of Ethics and Practice of which they were found to be in breach, and the steps (if any) taken by the Adjudication Panel in respect of the member so named.

Orders imposed by the Adjudication Panel have been made to:

  • Fulfil the Society’s role to protect members of the public
  • Maintain public confidence in the profession of homeopathy
  • Uphold the standards and conduct expected of Members

What the orders mean

Formal First Warning (F) – A member if given a formal warning which will remain on their file for a specified time agreed by the Panel.

Action Plan (A) – The member should agree upon an action plan to improve practice with the Professional Conduct Officer. Checks will ensure that the action plan is then followed.

Interim Suspension Order (I) – An allegation is serious enough for the member to be suspended pending an investigation and the outcome of the case.

Conditions of Practice (C) – conditions have been imposed on the member’s practice to enable him/her to take steps to remedy any deficiencies in their practice. Restrictions may be placed on the types of work that they may undertake. Conditions of practice judgements are sometimes imposed where there is evidence of incompetence or significant shortcomings in a member’s practice, but where the Committee is satisfied that there is potential for the member to respond positively to re-training and supervision.

Suspension (S) – the Panel has ordered that the member may not practise as a member of the Society of Homeopaths for a specified period of time. During this time he/she forgoes all rights and privileges of Society membership.

Expulsion (E) – this is the most severe sanction. The individual is no longer a member of the Society of Homeopaths.
