Our expert Employment Solicitors Leeds offer specialist representation for doctors in all cases presented by the General Medical Council (GMC)
The Regulatory Process
The following guidelines describe the disciplinary process as outlined by the General Medical Council.
The General Medical Council will seek out evidence from the doctor’s employer and expert witnesses where medical issues are in question. The doctor will also be permitted to offer information regarding the accusations at any point in the proceedings. By gathering this information, the doctor’s behaviour and performance will be assessed.
If deemed appropriate, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service can sanction an interim suspension order to restrict the doctor from practising throughout the duration of the investigation.
