HCPTS - Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service - Deborah Jacqueline Jackson

A panel of the HCPTS heard that Ms Jackson was suspended for a period of six months on the grounds of a lack of competence following a second review of a conditions of practice order.

The Panel further heard Ms Jackson’s original failings occurred while she worked for CAFCASS and included requiring three extensions from the court to prepare an initial analysis and recommendations for the case of Children DO and EO, and not attending court on time.

Panel Chair Deborah Baldwin commented:

“In the absence of any evidence of remediation and insight into her failings, the Panel identified a risk of repetition and an associated risk of harm to service users. The Panel therefore concluded that Ms Jackson’s fitness to practise remains impaired by reason of her lack of competence both on a personal level and also in the wider public interests of maintaining standards in the profession and confidence in the regulatory process.”

The Panel ordered for the name of Deborah Jacqueline Jackson to be struck off the HCPC Register.

Ms Jackson was neither present nor represented at the hearing.
