Hearings and decisions
At the end of our investigation we may decide to refer a doctor to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS).
Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service is responsible for running interim orders panel and fitness to practise hearings that make impartial decisions about a doctors' fitness to practise. Read more about the MPTS.
You can view the decisions of the interim order panels and fitness to practise panels on the Recent decisions page.
Sanctions guidance (information for lawyers and others)
MPTS fitness to practise panels use GMC guidance on sanctions . It is available on our Sanctions Guidance page. This information is most likely to be of interest for lawyers.
