Maureen will represent Medical Health Care and other professionals on behalf of one of the specialist Law Firms she has an agreement with as a Consultant Solicitor.
For any professional in a regulated profession, a regulatory investigation with the risk that it might lead to disciplinary proceedings can cause irreparable damage to their reputation and livelihood.
Where a professional is facing disciplinary proceedings before its professional body, it is strongly advisable that the individual seek expert legal advice at the earliest opportunity, as the possibility of achieving a favourable outcome may well depend on the approach taken at the outset, particularly where co-operation towards an agreed outcome may represent the best resolution of the matter.
All medical health care professionals facing Fitness to Practise- type hearing fare better than those who leave preparation to the last minute. Early legal advice is therefore strongly encouraged.
Maureen can assist the following professionals in disciplinary hearings:
- Doctors in fitness to practise hearings and hearings before the GMC
- Nurses in disciplinary hearings before the NMC
