3PB is, and has for many years been, a leading set in the field of professional discipline. A major part of our barristers’ disciplinary work is in the medical/healthcare field – often acting for GMC, GDC,  doctors and dentists. Many members of Chambers regularly appear at the GMC and GDC, and we are frequently instructed to act for other healthcare professionals including nurses, pharmacists, opticians, osteopaths  and chiropractors. Members also regularly appear at GMC fitness-to-practice panels as well as internal hospital trust disciplinary hearings, and advise and represent clients in High Court injunctive relief hearings, and appeals to the Administrative Court.

Our members have particular expertise and experience in representing healthcare professionals, facing dual disciplinary and criminal investigations, covering a full range of criminal charges (for example fraud, sexual assault, and medical manslaughter). We also have longstanding experience in representing hospital trusts facing Health and Safety criminal charges in the Crown Court.

We regularly act for members of other professions (eg accountants, actuaries and solicitors) in disciplinary proceedings and have extensive experience in the regulation of chartered surveyors and insurance brokers.

3PB’s team can be relied upon to respond quickly and to provide a complete legal service; from advice on compliance, to advocacy in the appellate courts. We understand the damage that may be done to a corporate or personal reputation as a result of enforcement activity is often the paramount concern of our clients.
