Arrangements for the reappointment of independent members of misconduct panels is ongoing and the new contract start date will be 1 January 2014 . The recruitment of a further 3 or 4 new independent members will take place in 2014/15. All reappointed members and the new members will be consulted to identify any knowledge gaps for the role and to ensure that all individual training needs are met.
