Professional Regulatory Complaints

Various professions - doctors, lawyers, nurses, etc. - have professional regulators that enforce codes of conduct and standards of profession. Increasingly, regulators have used their powers to punish professionals who publicly - and sometimes privately - dissent from official COVID-related views. TDF has acted, and continues to act, for some of these professionals.

Nurse #1

This nurse made several public comments about the COVID-19 virus and the response to the pandemic by the medical community and government. As a result, she received a letter from the regulating college informing her that she was under investigation for these comments.

We consulted with the nurse to structure a response. She initially chose to proceed through her union association at the investigatory stage.

Her regulator has decided to proceed to a disciplinary hearing, and TDF will likely assist in her defence through external counsel.
