Our team of medical law solicitors are world class and will provide you with legal advice and assistance and/or represent you if you are a trainee/junior doctor, registrar, specialty doctor or consultant facing difficulties at any stage throughout your medical education and training from the foundation year to achieving fellowship of a Royal College. Our healthcare lawyers fully appreciate how crucial it is for you to succeed and achieve your goals and will work closely with you in the event that you have not met certain competencies or have been unsuccessful in the completion of your core training to specialise as a GP or undertake other specialty training.

 

Our healthcare law solicitors will represent you or provide you with legal advice, if you are a medical consultant physician working in a hospital, community or in research and you have been accused of breaching the MRCP(UK) Examination Rules and Regulations or have failed the MRCP(UK) Part 1 Examination,  the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Written Examination, the MRCP(UK) Part 2 Clinical Examination (PACES) or the Specialty Certificate Examination.

 

Our solicitors will advise and assist you if you are a Foundation Year 1 (F1) Doctor or Foundation Year 2 (F2) Doctor, a rmedical consultant physician and you have not obtained the appropriate level of knowledge, clinical skills and competence to be awarded a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or a Combined Programme CESR (CESR(CP)) to gain entry onto the Specialist Register to be a Consultant in the National Health Service (NHS).

 

We can prepare your review or appeal and/or guide you through the regulations whatever your specialism, whether it is Cardiology, Pathology, Histopathology, Psychiatry, Clinical Pharmacology, Therapeutics and Toxicology or Endocrinology.

 

A number of issues may arise throughout your specialty and GP training, as junior doctors are required to undertake core training lasting for two years and three years in emergency medicine, paediatrics and psychiatry respectively. If you are doing specialty training as a registrar or specialty doctor, we can draft your review or appeal to ensure you satisfactorily progress to complete your training.

 

As a foundation doctor (foundation house officer (F1) and foundation house officer (F2)) you are trained and assessed against specific competencies set out in the curriculum agreed with the General Medical Council (GMC). There might be a number of reasons why you have not met all of the competencies prior to full GMC registration whilst on the training foundation programme. We can advise and assist you at any stage of your training.
