Doctor Avoids GMC Erasure

Doctor Avoids GMC Erasure

The doctor approached us very close to the original FtP listing in a matter which was, at that stage, almost inevitably going to lead to erasure by the MPTS.

After struggling through over two years of protracted GMC investigations. I can honestly say calling GMC Defence Barristers was the wisest decision I have ever made.

Insightful, very thorough, makes cases effortless and the team use simple language to assist Doctors.

Amazingly helpful barristers, who, as they are GMC specialists. Highly and unreservedly recommnended.

I would without reservation recommend GMC Defence Barristers to medical, dental and nursing personnel who require representation with their regulatory organisations

The service l received from was exceptional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone going through legal advice etc.

The service l received was exceptional.

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.
