Doctors are required to adhere to Good Medical Practice published by the General Medical Council. Failure to do so may lead to a GMC fitness to practise investigation and a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service Fitness to Practise Panel hearing, which can result in conditions on your General Medical Council registration, a suspension of your registration or erasure from the medical register, all of which can have devastating consequences for your career.
If the general medical Council think that restrictions need to be placed on a doctor’s registration while they investigate your concerns, they will refer the doctor to an interim orders tribunal at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service.
The interim orders tribunal can only impose an interim order up to a maximum period of 18 months. If the tribunal restricts a doctor’s registration, they will review the restriction every six months, and sooner if there is any reason why it may no longer be appropriate.
All interim orders tribunal hearings are held in private. This means that whilst the doctor’s name will appear on the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service website under their list of recent interim orders tribunal hearings, no further details regarding the allegations under investigation are released to the public.
