Upcoming hearings and previous decisions

The impact of COVID-19 is being felt in every aspect of society, and fitness to practise is no exception to this. Almost all hearings have now been postponed or adjourned, in line with government guidelines on COVID-19. However, where we perceive an immediate risk to patient safety, these urgent hearings are now being run remotely using video conference facilities. In addition, where appropriate and with the agreement of all parties concerned, we may also hold hearings which were previously adjourned part way through.

In the interest of transparency, the starting point for our fitness to practise hearings is that they take place in public, and we are aiming to maintain this principle for our remote hearings. We need to balance this against the need to prioritise the smooth running of hearings and, to this end, maximum attendance limits will apply.

To request a ‘public access’ place for a hearing in advance, please submit a request.

The Committee may consider it appropriate to hear entire hearings, or certain aspects or hearings, in private. In these instances, members of the public will not be admitted.

For further information on publication of outcomes, please see our Disclosure and Publications Policy.

For more information about remote hearings please read our guidance and FAQs.
