What we do

General Medical Council (GMC) research has shown that doctors who lacked legal representation tended to receive more serious outcomes.  

In contrast, the research concluded that there was no association between the seriousness of tribunal outcomes and a doctor’s age, race, sex, or whether they gained their primary medical qualification in the UK or abroad. 

The research conclusively showed that one of the most important factors for doctors facing fitness to practise proceedings is legal representation and engagement.
