7 February 2012
(i) The Appellant, a clinical therapist employee of the Royal Welsh College of Arts and Drama, challenged a decision made by the Panel of the Conduct and Competence Committee which concluded that she had committed acts of misconduct, and/or displayed a lack of competence. The Appellant challenged the refusal of the panel to consider expert evidence that she had adduced. The Appellant also submitted that the panel was wrong to conclude that her fitness to practice was impaired at the time of the decision.
