Fitness to Practise Annual Report published
21 December 2020
GOsC has published its latest fitness to practise report for 2019-20.
Our Fitness to Practise Annual Report 2019-2020 provides details of the decisions and any sanctions applied from the substantive hearings of the GOsC’s Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) concluded during the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.
The PCC hears cases concerning serious unacceptable conduct, incompetence or criminal convictions. If the Committee finds any such case proved, it imposes an appropriate sanction on the osteopath.
As part of the GOsC’s programme to continually enhance its fitness to practise processes, this year’s report details a number of updates, some of which involve adaptations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The annual fitness to practise reports provide guidance to osteopaths on the high standards of conduct and practice required to maintain registration. All of our fitness to practise annual reports, including this year’s, are available on our website.
