After giving evidence

You can stay at the hearing

You can leave after you’ve given your evidence or you can stay and watch the rest of the hearing. If you speak to a member of staff, they’ll show you where to sit.

We’ll publish the outcome

We usually publish the tribunal’s decisions on our website within 28 days of the hearing ending.

You can also ask the legal representative you’re giving evidence for (the GMC or the doctor) to tell you the outcome of the hearing or to send you the tribunal’s decision.
