The Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal (HPDT) hears and determines disciplinary proceedings brought against health practitioners and comprises of a chairperson, two deputy chairpersons and a panel of laypersons and health practitioners. The HPDT was created by Section 84 of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003.
