In response to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are running hearings slightly differently.
Some hearings are being held virtually and from 3 August some hearings will be held in our hearing centre. Running a small number of hearings at the hearing centre in Manchester will allow us to operate in the safest way possible, adhering to UK government advice.
We have a duty to run hearings in order to protect the public. We are committed to concluding cases in a timely way wherever possible, which is in the interests of all involved. Therefore, it is essential that we reopen the hearing centre, so we can hold a wider range of hearings.
