HCPC seeks Fitness to Practise Panel Members


The Health and Care Professions Council is seeking podiatrists to undertake the role of Fitness to Practise (FTP) panel member for the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service.

Panels hear and determine cases on behalf of the HCPTS's three Practice Committees: the Investigating Committee, Conduct and Competence and Health Committees.

They expect panel members to commit to around 5 days per year to ensure skills and competencies are retained.
