GMC / MPTS IOT Hearings – Does DDS provide legal help?
GMC / MPTS IOT Hearings are often arranged at short notice, giving a doctor little time to prepare their defence case and obtain relevant evidence. The more serious the allegation the less time a doctor might be given before an Interim Orders Tribunal is convened. At Doctors Defence Service (DDS) our lawyers are used to being instructed at short notice. DDS can usually arrange an appointment within a short period of time, face to face or via video-conference, to prepare for IOT hearing representation.
DDS lawyers can represent doctors at the GMC offices in Manchester, or elsewhere if the hearing is held in another part of the UK. Doctors Defence Service lawyers can provide legal help, by way of legal advice or legal representation at interim orders hearings.
