Any UAPD member who has received a formal written notice of suspension, termination, or limitation of medical staff privileges can apply to receive up to $1000 per case and per year to pay for legal consultation. The fund will be used to pay for attorneys who have been approved by UAPD to provide this service. UAPD will continue its practice of offering non-lawyer representation at the initial stages of disciplinary proceedings.
To determine if they are eligible to receive funds under this policy, the member must apply to a three-person screening committee appointed by the UAPD President. The decisions of this Committee shall be final. Other restrictions apply– please contact the Sacramento office at 916-442-6977 for details and to submit an application to the screening committee.
