Upcoming hearings and previous decisions

Below you will find the listings for our upcoming and past hearings, including fitness to practise, interim orders, interim order reviews and registration appeals.

Our hearings form a vital part of the public protection framework we operate across the UK. Maintaining this essential service during the coronavirus pandemic has meant holding most of our hearings remotely using online meeting technology.

We will continue to hold hearings remotely, especially interim order and review hearings, where there are clear benefits in expediting proceedings. We are also holding hearings at our London offices, and will continue to do this when it is clear that the evidence would be best heard in person, to ensure fairness to all parties involved.

Where applications are made for a hearing to be held in person, a GDC hearing committee will decide how the matter should be heard, in line with our decision making guidance. We are also now listing ‘on paper’ interim orders, interim order review and registration appeal hearings flexibly. These are hearings that are not attended by the dental professional concerned. There is no oral evidence provided, and all decisions are based on paper evidence submissions.

These types of hearings are given a listing window of one week, as opposed to a specific date for the hearing. The date listed below will be the date that the five-day window commences. Listing in this way provides adequate notification to parties involved, while ensuring we are effectively utilising any gaps that appear in the schedule.

Our hearings are held in public. This principle has been maintained for remote hearings in the interest of transparency. However, we need to balance transparency with the need to ensure the smooth running of the hearing, so maximum attendance limits may apply.

You should submit your request to attend a hearing in advance.

You will find further details on the release of hearing outcomes in our disclosure and publications policy.
