More about us & What we Do

GMC Defence Barristers, part of Kings View Chambers, understand the complexities of the career doctor.  We provide an excellent service for doctors of all levels working within the NHS and private practise.

Our barristers have acted on behalf of doctors working in a variety of settings and at a variety of levels, from medical students through to consultant level.  We have acted for doctors facing concerns raised about their practice because of health, poor practice or misconduct.

We advise in the early stages of an investigation or referral to the GMC. We advise doctors facing issues raised by their employer, their Deanery or regulator and understand the complex interface between all three. 

GMC Fitness to Practise

Our barristers have acted on behalf of doctors working in a variety of settings and at a variety of levels, from medical students through to consultant level.

GMC Restoration

Doctors considering applying for restoration following a voluntary erasure should seek legal advice to discuss the individual circumstances that lead to the voluntary erasure and the best way to approach the restoration application.

Registration & Revalidation

We can assist, advise and represent doctors in all matters relating to GMC registration and revaluation, including any complications and difficulties with either of these or appeals.

Appeals

Doctors can appeal almost any decision made by either the GMC or Medical Practitioner’s Tribunal, but early legal advice and guidance is key. We have extensive experience in all matters relating to GMC & MPTS appeals.
