Professional Conduct Committee - Lay

Appointment of three lay Professional Conduct Committee members

The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) is looking for three new lay members to join its Professional Conduct 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.

Professional Conduct Committee

The GOsC’s Professional Conduct Committee hears and adjudicates on complaints referred to it by the Investigating Committee relating to professional misconduct or incompetence or where an osteopath is convicted of a criminal offence. Professional Conduct Committee members also sit on the Health Committee which considers cases where an osteopath’s health may impair their ability to practise. 


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

How to apply

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