Can I bring a representative to my ARCP appeal?

Trainees have a right to be represented at an appeal hearing, to address it and to submit written evidence beforehand.

Trainees should consider representation as soon as possible, and supply to the Healthcare Education Team the name, contact details and the professional capacity (if applicable) of any representative or adviser who will be attending the appeals panel with them.

The trainee may choose to be represented, for example, by a friend, colleague or a representative of their professional body.

If a trainee wishes to be represented by a lawyer, then legal representatives should be reminded that appeal hearings are not courts of law and the panel governs its own procedure including the questioning to be allowed of others by the legal representative.

In addition to a representative who will come into the appeal panel, the trainee may also wish to bring a friend or family member who can arrive with them and provide support on the day including before and after the appeal hearing.
