The Medical Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal hears and
determines disciplinary proceedings brought against medical
practitioners under Part VIII of the Medical Practitioners Act
1995 (the Act). References are made to sections of the Act. The
information under Disciplinary Process, does not replace the Act which contains the legal and
statutory provisions relating to the operation of the Tribunal.
This information sets out the usual procedures to be followed before
and during a hearing, but the Tribunal may adopt different
procedures, appropriate to the circumstances, from time to time.
The Tribunal comprises a Chair, a senior Deputy Chair, a Deputy Chair and a panel of
not fewer than 12 members, all appointed by the Minister of
Health. When the Tribunal sits to hear and determine any
matter it sits with a Chair or Deputy Chair and four members,
three of whom are medical practitioners and one person who is
not a medical practitioner.
The Tribunal sits in the principal centre nearest to where the
events which resulted in the charge(s) took place, unless all
parties request and the Tribunal approves, an alternative venue.
