telecon

A term with a specific significance for General Medical Council (GMC) in Fitness to Practise (FTP) proceedings, a teleconference (telecon) is a case management procedure intended to sort out the logistics of placing a case before an FTP Panel.

The first telecon determines the date when the case will be heard, taking into account the GMC’s service standard and the preparation time required by the GMC lawyers and the defence. A date for GMC disclosure is set and a stage-2 telecon is held shortly after to look at whether the GMC have complied and the case is on track. The telecon is chaired by a GMC adjudication administrator who is not legally qualified; no substantive issues can be determined on the telecon. However if there are concerns regarding the timetable, disclosure and/or witness evidence, a case review can be requested.
