New GOsC guidance for witnesses
19 May 2016
Witnesses at fitness to practise hearings play a vital role in helping the GOsC to maintain public safety.
To help witnesses give their best evidence in hearings we have produced an introductory video and leaflet to explain what happens before, during and after a hearing.
The video helps to familiarise witnesses with the hearing venue and shows our reception area, the layout of the hearing room, and where they will sit to give evidence.
The leaflet is a step-by-step guide to the role of a witness at a hearing, including the support offered by the GOsC.
This new guidance is available to view on our public website at http://www.osteopathy.org.uk/standards/complaints/hearings/attending-a-hearing/witness-guidance/
