The following Corporate Crime guidance note Produced in partnership with Andrew Hockton of Serjeants’ Inn Chambers provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Where a sanction has been imposed, it will not take effect until after the end of the 28-day appeal period, and therefore the GMC will usually make an application to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal for an immediate order to be imposed to cover the appeal period. Appeals are governed by section 40 of the Medical Act 1983 (MeA 1983). An appeal should be made to the High Court within 28 days 'beginning with the date on which notification of the decision was served'.
Notification for these purposes does not refer to the handing down of its determination by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal, rather the written notification of the outcome to GMC v Narayan.
It should be noted that there is no power to impose immediate conditions where a sanction of erasure or suspension is imposed.
On giving an order for erasure or suspension, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal has the power to impose an immediate order of suspension. This takes immediate effect and covers the 28-day period before the substantive direction comes into effect and during any further period pending the determination of the appeal. Where a sanction of conditions is imposed, there is a power to make an order of conditions with immediate effect. An immediate order has effect until the conclusion of any appeal
