Working with doctors, working for patients
Senior decision maker in Fitness to Practise
£68,989 - £74,502 (pro-rated)
The General Medical Council (GMC) helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. We support them in achieving (and exceeding) those standards, and take action when they are not met.
As part of a team of medical and lay case examiners, you will have a senior and highly responsible role that is central to the GMC’s fitness to practise procedures. Your role will require the analysis of complex information from multiple sources to reach an impartial judgement on the appropriate outcome of an investigation.
As a medically qualified and currently registered doctor with a licence to practise, you will join a dynamic team of medical and lay colleagues from diverse backgrounds. Investigation outcomes must be jointly agreed by two decision makers (medical and lay), and are subject to high levels of scrutiny. You must have excellent verbal and written communication skills, the flexibility to listen to other viewpoints and the confidence to present a well-reasoned argument.
Previous experience of medicolegal or tribunal work would be an advantage but is not essential as comprehensive training and support will be provided for this unique and fascinating role. The GMC offers an attractive salary and benefits package. The role is part-time and medical case examiners maintain professional commitments outside the GMC.
You will be a home worker. However, during the induction and training period there will be a requirement to attend the office on a regular basis. The role will require occasional travel to the GMC’s London office.
Closing date: 1 March 2017
Assessment Centre is planned for 22 March 2017 and likely date for 1st stage interview is 3 April 2017.
