Fitness to practise panel

Fitness to Practise panel members

​Membership of the GDC's Statutory Committees which make decisions on dental professionals' fitness to practise is drawn from an independent pool of dental professionals and lay people called the Fitness to Practise Panel. These panellists can sit as members of Interim Orders, Professional Conduct, Professional Performance, Health or Registration Appeals Committees.

The role Fitness to Practise panel members play during a hearing

This video explains the part our independently appointed fitness to practise panel members play in our hearings process and how this challenging role makes a difference to patients and dental professionals in providing proportionate and fair regulation of the dental profession.

The Fitness to Practise panel is made up of dentists, lay people and dental care professionals (DCPs).
