I'm being investigated by the police

  1. Call the DDU immediately on 0800 374 626. This is vital if you have been arrested or are being interviewed under caution. Remember our advice line is available 24 hours a day for situations such as this.
  2. If you are asked to attend an interview, ask whether it is an interview under caution. Do not agree to an interview under caution or make voluntary comments to the police without seeking our advice first.
  3. If you can, gather together any information that is relevant to the investigation. This might include patient records, workplace emails, or letters but do not delay contacting the DDU.
  4. Make a note of your recollection of events to help jog your memory later but do not write a statement or sign one prepared for you by the police before seeking our advice.
  5. Do not make contact with anyone who may be a witness in the police investigation or discuss the allegations with anyone other than your DDU adviser and legal team.
