Do I need a solicitor for a GMC hearing?
Unfortunately, many highly skilled and dedicated doctors will find themselves facing a GMC investigation or MPTS hearing and/or called to inquests at some stage of their careers.
That’s why you need to seek specialist legal advice and representation the moment you become aware of even the potential for GMC or MPTS proceedings.
Crucially, it also runs all the way through to the provision of representation and advice in the case of criminal investigations, patient allegations and regulatory proceedings.
Our experienced medical defence lawyers can help you by:
- Defending you in (GMC) and Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) proceedings
- Defending you in Interim Orders Hearings (IOP) and Fitness to Practice (FTP) hearings
- Representing and advising you in appeals and judicial review cases against GMC decisions or other Court and Tribunal findings
- Attending medical inquests
How much does legal help for a GMC investigation cost?
Our initial advice is free. If you’re aware of any impending proceedings it’s wise to call us as soon as possible for a free consultation and a ‘sense check’ of the allegations against you.
Unlike Barristers who offer mainly advocacy at a hearing or tribunal, our support starts from day one and includes a comprehensive service to prepare for and defend against any and all unfounded accusations.
We can also work with your indemnity insurers or talk to you about staged, fixed fee payments if you find that preferable.
My solicitor was caring, professional, thorough in her approach and her attention details was what was needed on the day. I had a positive result that day and I am certain that without their help this would not have been possible. Anonymous (criminal defence case)
My solicitor has the knack of getting straight to the point. She then pursues that point fearlessly on her client’s behalf. Moreover, she conducts herself with such good humour and charm as to raise one’s spirits whatever the difficulties. Loyalty is her middle name. Anonymous (Professional misconduct case)
We have no hesitation in recommending your company to our friends and family. You have always been on hand to answer any queries and was able to explain every step of the process in a clear and concise way. It has been one of the most upsetting and stressful times over the last month or so, but has helped having you on our side. G B (criminal defence case)
I found my solicitor to be friendly, professional and courteous and furthermore always available either by phone or near instant email replies. My case looked cut and dry and I was expecting a lengthy ban and fine, but somehow the case was thrown out! Mr Q, Essex (criminal defence case)
