Investigating Committee - Lay

Appointment of two lay Investigating Committee members

The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) is looking for two new lay members to join its Investigating Committee from 1 April 2017.

The candidates

We are looking for committed individuals with a demonstrable interest in osteopathy and healthcare regulation, who are able to work well in a team to reach fair and objective decisions.

We are keen to consider applicants who do not already sit on other regulators’ panels/committees.

Investigating Committee

The GOsC’s Investigating Committee considers all complaints against osteopaths received by the GOsC. Investigating panels make an initial determination about whether there is a ‘case to answer’ and that the matter should be referred to the Professional Conduct Committee. The Investigating Committee also has powers of interim suspension in relation to osteopaths.


Remuneration is £306 per day. Travel and subsistence expenses are also refundable.

How to apply

To apply you must complete and return both parts of the relevant application form below.

We are also recruiting for lay members and registrant members of the Professional Conduct Committee. If you are interested in both we encourage you to choose which of the two committees you wish to apply for.

Further information

For full details please download the Investigating Committee candidate information pack.

Application forms

Please note that there are different forms for the two committees and for lay and registrant applicants.

You must complete and return both parts of the application form

Closing date: noon on Wednesday 23 November 2016. Appointments start 1 April 2017 (initially for up to four years).

The General Osteopathic Council values and promotes diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
