Ms Alex Caitlin Draper – Alcohol and Drug Clinician / Therapist

7 March 2022

On 7 March 2022 the Commission made the following prohibition order under section 41A(2) of the Health Care Complaints Act 1993:

Ms Alex Draper is prohibited, under any circumstances, to provide, or cause to be provided, any health services, either in paid employment or voluntarily, to any member of the public for a minimum period of 3 years.

For the purpose of this order, ‘health service’ is given the meaning as defined under section 4 of the Health Care Complaints Act 1993.

The order will remain in place from the date the order is made, and, following that time, Ms Draper may apply to the Commission for a review of the prohibition order.

The order will remain in place until Ms Draper satisfies the Commission that she has:

Demonstrated that she acknowledges and understands the risks posed to vulnerable patients if boundaries are violated by their health care professionals; and

  1. Completed an appropriate training course(s) in client and professional conduct, boundary setting, and ethics.

For the purposes of this order 'a health service' carries the same meaning as defined under section 4 of the Health Care Complaints Acts 1993.
