Legal assessors

Legal assessors are qualified, experienced solicitors, paid by the Council to provide legal advice.

Legal assessors are always present when a panel meets to consider a complaint against a health and care professional, for example at a hearing or a preliminary meeting. The legal assessor provides guidance on the law to all parties involved in a meeting. They ensure that all hearings and meetings are run in accordance with the law.

Legal assessors attend approximately 15 to 30 hearing days per year, depending on the number of events being scheduled and individuals’ availability to attend.
