National Disqualification: Primary Health Lists Tribunal

Primary Health List National Disqualification Legal Representation

Primary Care Trusts that remove a doctor from a primary health list, or performers list, may apply to an independent tribunal called the Primary Health Lists Tribunal (Health, Education and Social Care Chamber) for an order that the doctor (or other practitioner) be disqualified from appearing on all primary health lists throughout the jurisdiction.

There are two tiers to the Primary Health Lists Tribunal. The first tier will deal with the hearing itself, while the second tier deals with appeals from decisions of the first tier.

Doctors Defence Service represents and advises doctors who are engaged in primary health list proceedings. Call in strict confidence to discuss a primary health list matter with one of our experienced lawyers on: 0800 10 88 739
