Sanctions guidance

Medical practitioners tribunals sanctions

Our guidance helps decision makers decide what sanction to impose on a doctor. It's used when a doctor's fitness to practise is found to be impaired by a medical practitioners tribunal.

It covers:

  • the purpose of sanctions and considering factors
  • the issue of warnings, where a tribunal decides a doctor’s fitness to practise is not impaired.

This is a living document and we revise our guidance when it's needed.
