9 Summary

Although the chairing member carries specific responsibilities for the conduct of the hearing, all three panel members have a role in ensuring that the hearing flows effectively. It is part of the culture of the children's hearing system that the chairing member and panel members should work together as a team sharing responsibilities and supporting one another in order to reach a decision which is in the child's best interests.
