As well as being required to notify this Board of concerns about a psychotherspits health, all psychotherapists have a legal obligations to notify about any helath pracitioner (for example) the Medical Council of concerns about a doctor's health, or the Nrusing Council of concerns about a Nurses health.

The following people are also required to advise the Board if they believe that a psychotherapist is unable to perform the functions required for the practice of their profession due to some mental or physical condition:
