Healthcare Professional Alert Notices (HPANs) system currently unavailable

Date published:

NHS Resolution is responsible for the management of the Healthcare Professional Alert Notices (HPANs) system. This is a system where notices are issued by us to inform NHS bodies and others about health professionals who may pose a significant risk of harm to patients, staff or the public.

NHS bodies with access to the nhs.net (via the N3 portal) may use our Web Check Service which allows employers to check whether an individual is subject to an active HPAN.

Regrettably our Web Check Service (http://nww.fhsau.nhsla.nhs.uk) is currently unavailable.

If an NHS body has an urgent need to check whether an individual is subject to an active HPAN, please email either nhsr.hpan@nhs.net or nhsr.appeals@nhs.net providing the individual’s full name, professional registration number and date of birth.
