Regulating doctors, ensuring good medical practice
11 Jun 2012
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) now has responsiblity for running fitness to practise hearings.
The MPTS makes impartial decisions in doctors' fitness to practise and interim order panel hearings. The MPTS is part of the General Medical Council, but it is operationally separate and it is accountable to Parliament.
If you require updates about fitness to practise hearings, please contact the MPTS press office on 0161 250 6868, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or www.mpts-uk.org for more information.
To view current and forthcoming hearings see the MPTS fitness to practise hearings calendar.
