Medical Case Examiner (Part time 2-3 days) x 2 posts
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, 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. Depending on the Government advice at the time of induction, the initial training period will likely involve occasional attendance at a GMC office, predominantly in Manchester.
In return, you’ll benefit from being part of an organisation that is genuinely committed to its people. Within our friendly environment, you will have access to a range of learning and development opportunities designed to support your ongoing progression. We offer an attractive salary and benefits package. To find out more please click here.
The GMC values diversity and has made a public commitment to processes and procedures that are fair, objective, transparent and free from discrimination.
Diversity of background and experience contributes to a broader collective perspective. It is only through building an inclusive and diverse workforce that we can continue to excel as an effective and relevant regulator; constantly improving in our mission to protect patients and support doctors. We are focused on developing a diverse and inclusive organisation; one that reflects the doctors that it works with and the public that it represents.
