Become a tribunal medical member and contribute your skills in a new way

Applications for medically-qualified members of the First-tier Tribunal will open on 3 August 2017.

This is an exciting opportunity for medical professionals to use their skills and knowledge to make important decisions that will make a real difference to people's lives.

The Social Entitlement Chamber in the First-tier Tribunal is looking for approximately 200 new medical members to bring their expertise to the tribunal. It hears appeals arising from decisions made about disability benefits. Doctors from all backgrounds can apply.

As the medical member you will sit alongside a tribunal judge and sometimes a disability-qualified member. All tribunal members contribute to the decision about the benefit being appealed.

Your application must be submitted by 1pm on 24 August.
