Adjudication Panel hearing: Mr Jean Drouffe
On 21 May 2015, the Adjudication Panel considered an allegation of misconduct against Mr Jean Drouffe relating to the insufficient completion of continuing professional development (CPD) recorded on his online record in respect of CPD year 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014.
The panel felt that the respondent had demonstrated a dismissive attitude towards the investigation, executive sanctions regime and CPD Scheme and, as such, determined that the facts as alleged against the respondent amounted to a prima facie case of misconduct. The panel invited the respondent to accept that there had been misconduct and a fine of £3,000 by way of sanction.
The level of fine imposed by the panel reflects the seniority and the experience of the respondent within the profession and his failure to avail himself of two opportunities to rectify his failure to record sufficient CPD activity.
