Hearing types and how they work

We run two types of hearing for doctors who have allegations made about their fitness to practise medicine.

In this guide we give a general overview of both:

  • interim orders tribunals
  • medical practitioners tribunals.

If you're involved in a hearing you should use our resources for doctors and representatives or our hearing guide for witnesses for support.
