Fitness to Practise Panel

A panel which convenes in the UK to hear evidence provided by witnesses and the doctor in question, and decides whether a doctor's fitness to practise is impaired. FtP Panel hearings are the final stage in the General Medical Council’s procedures following a complaint about the doctor in question. To weigh allegations, the Panel discusses the evidence and votes in private.
