Performance assessments as part of an investigation or hearing

Performance assessments are carried out to assess your professional performance and obtain an independent opinion on your fitness to practise. They can be directed by:

  • the GMC, to support an investigation into your fitness to practise
  • an MPTS tribunal, to gather evidence for a review hearing.
