Witness guidance

Maintaining patient safety and public confidence in the osteopathic profession means that we must investigate and consider complaints about osteopaths’ conduct, competence or health.

To do this we rely on patients and members of the public to tell us if they have concerns about a registered osteopath. The role of witnesses is vital in this process.

We have produced an introductory video and leaflet to explain what happens before, during and after a hearing, to help witnesses to give their best evidence.

Click on the video below or download the leaflet below to find out more.

Witness guidance video

The video helps you also to familiarise with the hearing venue. You will see our reception area, the layout of the hearing room, and where you will sit to give your evidence.
