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.

It goes without saying that this can be a distressing and worrying time for any doctor, as severe and even career-ending sanctions, including criminal proceedings, are possible.

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 GMC solicitors for doctors can help you by:

  • Defending you in General Medical Council (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

Talk to one of our experts today by calling 0330 041 5869 or contact us and we’ll be happy to call you back.

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.

You can talk to one of our experienced GMC solicitors for doctors 24 hours a day by calling 0330 041 5869 or by contacting us online so we can call you back.
