Hearing Panel (Member)

The members of the Hearing Panel sit in two capacities: Firstly, as Members of the Fitness to Practise (FTP) Committee which considers whether a registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired and impose sanctions if appropriate to do so. Secondly, as Members of the Registration Appeals Committee which considers appeals against any decision of the Registrar refusing to enter the name of an individual or body corporate in, or to restore it to, the appropriate register.
As well as helping the GOC to protect the public and regulate the profession, being a Hearing Panel member allows me to share my unique skills and experience whilst learning from others.
