Senior Decision Maker: Fitness to practise
The General Medical Council (GMC) sets the standards for medical students and doctors across the UK. We support them to achieve and exceed those standards, with the aim of improving medical education and practice. We protect patients by taking appropriate action when these standards aren’t met.
Offering an excellent salary and benefits, this fascinating role gives the opportunity to join a diverse team of medical and lay case examiners. As a senior member of the fitness to practise team and an experienced doctor with a current licence to practise, your main responsibility will be to reach an impartial judgement on the outcome of an investigation. Ideally, you’ll be on the GP register or the specialist register in a general medical speciality and you’ll maintain your clinical commitments outside the GMC.
In this highly responsible and unique role, investigation outcomes must be jointly agreed by two decision makers. You’ll have excellent verbal and written communication skills, the flexibility to listen to other viewpoints and the confidence to present a well-reasoned argument. The ability to analyse complex information from multiple sources will be central to your decision-making process.
Previous experience of medicolegal or tribunal work would be an advantage but is not essential, as comprehensive training and support will be provided.
Whilst the role is home based, you’ll need to attend team and other occasional meetings in the Manchester or London offices. The initial training period will involve regular attendance at a GMC office, predominantly in Manchester.
The closing date for this position is midnight 20th May 2018.
If you are successful at the application stage, you will be invited to attend an assessment centre, which will be held on 20th June 2018. First stage interviews will be held on 18th July and second stage interviews will be held on 2nd August 2018.
All assessments/interviews will be held at our Manchester offices.
