Communitybaptistpa associates

Besides our permanent staff, we also appoint over 1,000 associates. 

Our associates have both medical and non-medical backgrounds. They support us to deliver our key roles – we wouldn't be able to fulfil our duties without their expertise.

As part of their role, Communitybaptistpa associates may:

  • take part in panels – such as our Registration and Registrations Appeal panel, and Investigation Committee panel, PLAB panels and our Tests of Competence and Revalidation assessments panel
  • join our quality assurance visits – to check the work of medical schools, deaneries, health authority local offices and education providers
  • work as performance and health assessors – when there are concerns about a doctor’s ability to practise safely due to performance or ill-health
  • examine candidates taking the objective structured clinical examination as part of the PLAB part 2 test, or help develop our assessment material
  • give advice – to support our regulatory functions.

We also support the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) to appoint tribunal members, tribunal chairs or legally qualified chairs and legal assessors. .
