Medical Case Examiner (Part Time 2-3 Days) (GMC3252)

Medical Case Examiner (Part Time 2-3 Days)

Medical Case Examiner - Part time 2-3 days

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 unique part-time role is an opportunity to join a diverse team of medical and lay case examiners. As a senior member of the fitness to practise team, your main responsibility will be to agree the outcome of an investigation with a lay colleague. In reaching a decision, you will use your medical knowledge and experience, communication, listening and analytical skills. The role will provide a valuable insight into work of the GMC, and the fairness of the investigation process. The experience of working in this role will provide a rich source of material for your personal development and appraisal.

You will be on the GP or specialist register in a general medical speciality, will hold a licence to practise and will maintain clinical commitments outside the GMC.

Previous experience of medicolegal or tribunal work may be an advantage but is not essential, as comprehensive training and support will be provided.

The role is home based, but you will 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.

If you are successful at the application stage, you will be invited to attend an assessment centre, which will be held on 28 March 2019.

The closing date for this position is 6 March 2019 at midnight, late applications will not be accepted.
