Professional Discipline and Healthcare Regulators is a practical and accessible guide to professional disciplinary hearings before the major healthcare regulators. It provides comprehensive coverage of the legal principles as they apply to fitness to practise proceedings alongside step by step guide to preparation, practice and procedure with tips and tactics for effective representation at all stages of proceedings.

Written by a highly experienced author team who regularly appear in tribunal hearings it is the only claimant-focused guide to this area of law. Anyone representing a claimant needs not only to understand the legal principles underpinning proceedings but to be clear on the nuanced practices and procedures of each professional body.

This second edition has been restructured to make it even easier to navigate the general legal principles and there is extensive cross-referencing throughout. It covers the significant structural changes brought about by the newly formed tribunal services that aim to promote independence between investigation and adjudication stages of fitness to practice proceedings, the use of Legally Qualified Chairs, legal assessors, and the right of appeal against tribunal decisions. There are new chapters on the General Pharmaceutical Council and on appeals and judicial review.
