Professional Standards Committee hearings
Hearings before Professional Standards Committees are generally held in public in NSW and parties can be legally represented. A list of current hearings can be accessed online at the Medical Council of NSW website, or you can send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Professional Standards Committees generally hear complaints concerning allegations of unsatisfactory professional conduct of medical practitioners, nurses and midwives. The Committees are established by the respective health professional Council. The Committees deal with less serious matters than Tribunals and are generally less formal than Tribunals. Committees, like Tribunals, comprise four members, one of whom must be legally qualified.
Persons attending a hearing must abide by any non-publications directions made by the Chair of the Committee and any hearing and/or media guidelines.
