The HCPC are currently seeking orthoptists to undertake the role of FTP panel member for the Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service. The HCPTS is the fitness to practise adjudication service of the Health and Care Professions Council. Panels hear and determine cases on behalf of the HCPTS’s three Practice Committees: the Investigating Committee, Conduct and Competence and Health Committees.

You must be *registered with the HCPC* and meet the criteria set out in the Information for Applicants. It is expected that panel members commit to around ten days per year to ensure skills and competencies are retained which includes training. The length and notice for tribunal appointments are variable and can fit most diary commitments and working patterns.

The HCPTS  pay a rate of £206 per day as well as travel and accommodation expenses in accordance with the HCPC Partner Expense Policy.

The HCPC is committed to equality of opportunity and actively guards against unfair discrimination on any grounds (including sexual orientation, religion or beliefs, race, sex, age or disability).
