Does the ‘Restricted Patient Panel’ still exist? Any sources on this?
I’m sorry you’ve not had a reply in all this time. Did you find your answer? An online search for “Restricted patients panel” comes up with lots of pages suggesting it still exists. This Judicial Appointments Commission page is the closest I could find to an authoritative source: Completed selection exercise information – Judicial Appointments Commission. The relevant row of the table there is:
|Exercise||Number of vacancies||Number of applications received||Number of candidates recommended||Selection and character committee date|
