NN 2020 – cost of hearings

Feb 25, 2022 | Fitness to Practice, Resources

Based on an FOI and court costs observed in 2018 – these costs were worked out on the rates given below:


4 day FtP hearing         Lay and panel member fees     £2,480

Panel chair fee                              £1,360

Legal assessor hearing fee         £2,000

Legal assessor reading fee         £100

Other expenses including travel and accommodation for all         £1802

Total                                                           £7742

It was interesting that this registrant did her own FOI to determine the costs associated with her case as this enabled us to learn about the associated fees that come with cases, such as expenses and reading fees.

We are encouraging all our members to do the same so we can learn more.
