Deans Court Chambers has been the leading regional set in this area of professional discipline for many years. We have a 27 strong team comprising both defence and prosecution practitioners with a vast range of experience from leading KCs to more junior barristers.

The Healthcare team regularly defend and prosecute before the MPTS where Chambers have an extensive level of expertise. The team also have extensive experience in front of other healthcare regulators including the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the General Optical Council (GOC), the professional Conduct Committee of the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) etc.

Our expertise encompasses the full range of potential disciplinary cases including complex clinical cases, allegations of dishonesty, sexual misconduct etc.

Members of the team also regularly appear in inquests, criminal cases and local level disciplinary hearings which make Deans Court uniquely well placed to offer support and assistance every step of the way.
