If you are facing investigation by the General Dental Council (GDC), then it is essential that you receive specialist legal advice, before responding to the GDC
The GDC will investigate concerns/allegations raised against dental practitioners that call into question their fitness to practice. Matters that the GDC will investigate include:
If the GDC believe that an allegation is credible, or considered serious enough, then an investigation will begin, and Case Examiners for the GDC will invite you to make representations. It is always important to respond with representations to any allegation that has been made against you. At Poole Alcock we can assist you in making appropriate representations to the GDC. Case examiners will decide whether to take no action, conclude your case with advice, issue you with a formal warning or refer the case to one of the GDC’s Practice Committees. Written representations can make the difference between a case against you being closed, or continuing onto the next stage.
If the case is referred to one of the GDC’s Practice Committees, there will be a full public hearing of the case. The Practice Committee will determine whether you are fit to practice and whether any action is to be taken against you.
The sanctions that are available to the Practice Committee include:
The GDC could also apply for Interim Orders, at the Interim Order Committee, to be made whilst the investigation against you is ongoing. The Interim Orders that can be made can either place conditions on your practice or even suspend you from practice, before any allegation has even been proven.
At Poole Alcock we can assist you in defending allegations that have been made against you, regardless of which stage of the investigation your case is at.
