Review, revocation and extension of interim orders

Review, revocation and extension of interim orders

An interim order is an order made by the General Medical Council (GMC) interim orders tribunal suspending or imposing conditions upon a practitioner's registration on an interim basis pending investigation and/or adjudication of the case.

Interim orders are governed by the Medical Act 1983 (MeA 1983) and the Fitness to Practise Rules 2004. See Practice Note: The General Medical Council interim orders tribunal.

Review and revocation

Where an interim orders tribunal has made an interim suspension order or an interim conditional registration order, it must be reviewed within six months of it being made and thereafter every six months.

A practitioner can request an earlier review, which must be heard as soon as practicable after three months from the date of the immediately preceding order.

A review must take place within three months of the first or any subsequent order where:

  1. an order for interim conditions has been replaced with an order for interim suspension

  2. an order for interim suspension has been replaced with an order for interim conditions

  3. the High Court has extended an order beyond the period initially set

An interim orders tribunal has a discretion to review an order when new evidence relevant to the order has become available after the making of the order.

An interim orders tribunal may:

  1. revoke the order or any
