Anyone who is being investigated by the GMC should seek immediate specialist legal advice in order to protect their position, so far as is possible from the outset of any investigation.
Our team has wide-ranging experience in successfully defending doctors and medical professionals.
We appreciate the stress that such an investigation can bring and the impact it can have on future practice. We will ensure that robust representations are made at the appropriate stages of proceedings.
We have extensive experience dealing with the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, which will present any case to the GMC and, in the event of a suspension from practice pending the outcome of any investigation, we will explore the possibility of a return to practice with conditions until conclusion of the investigation.
