Quotes

Heavily involved in high-profile matters in the healthcare disciplinary field.

Temple Garden Chambers has a highly experienced team of practitioners who practise regularly in this field both advising and appearing on behalf of regulatory bodies and individuals.

Regulatory organisations with which Chambers has long-established relationships include the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, the General Dental Council, the General Optical Council, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the General Pharmaceutical Council, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Royal College of Nurses, Farriers Registration and Social Work England. Members of chambers appear as advocates, and also as Legally Qualified Chairs and Legal Advisers to Professional Conduct Committees.

Chambers prides itself on its experience in dealing sensitively with the difficult professional and personal issues that can arise in this field. Members of the team welcome instructions both to appear on behalf of professionals who are required to face proceedings before “Fitness to Practise” Committees or to present cases on behalf of regulators.

Members of the team are also available to provide seminars/webinars on topics of current interest in this area.
