Can the information I record in 1CPD be used in a disciplinary case against me?

We will not ask for reflective records from veterinary surgeons or veterinary nurses as part of our concerns, investigation or disciplinary processes.

However, we do not control the actions of the courts and recorded reflections, such as in ePortfolios or for CPD purposes, are not subject to legal privilege. Therefore disclosure of these documents might be requested by a court if it is concerned that they are relevant to the matters to be determined in litigation. The likelihood of records needing to be produced in court may be reduced if reflective records focus on reactions to, and learning from, an incident.
