Interested in joining our fitness to practise committees?

4 November 2015

Last chance to apply for roles on our Fitness to Practise Committees as the closing date is noon on Wednesday 11 November.

We are looking for eight new members (four osteopath and four lay) of the committees. This is a great opportunity to become involved in the work of the GOsC.

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.

The Investigating Committee considers all complaints against osteopaths received by the GOsC and makes initial determinations about whether there is a ‘case to answer’ and whether the matter should be referred to the Professional Conduct Committee.

The 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.

Appointments start 1 April 2016 (initially for up to four years). Closing date is noon on Wednesday 11 November.
