NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal hearings
Hearings before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal are public and the parties can be legally represented. For NSW, a list of current hearings can be accessed online on the Tribunal's website.
The Commission may prosecute a complaint against a registered health practitioner before the Occupational Division of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The Tribunal is legally separate from and independent of the relevant health professional Council. The Tribunal is made up of a legally qualified member (in the Medical Tribunal this is a District Court Judge), two members from the same registered health profession as the practitioner the subject of the complaint, and a lay person. Decisions of hearings are usually publicly available.
Persons attending a hearing must abide by any non-publications directions made by the Chair of the Tribunal and any hearing and/or media guidelines.
