Panel members

Panel members include registered medical practitioners, members of the public, and registered members of all the professions. They handle complaints about the fitness to practise of HCPC health and care professionals and consider registration appeals.

Panel members can be involved at two stages of the fitness to practise process:

    1. When a complaint is investigated. When a complaint is received it is passed to an ‘investigating panel’ who sit in private and examine the facts and decides whether to take the case further.

    2. When a complaint reaches the hearing stage. Panels hear evidence and decide whether a HCPC registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired and if action is taken to protect the public.

Panel members spend 10 to 20 working days each year on hearings. The amount of work offered to individuals varies greatly according to the volume of cases and the professions involved.
