Information for employers
If you work for an NHS Trust or other employer and you are considering taking internal disciplinary action against an osteopath, you need to tell us, especially if there is evidence to suggest that an osteopath's ability to practise may be impaired.
Informing us does not necessarily mean that we will seek to bring the case before the Professional Conduct Committee or ask you to suspend or end your own procedures. In many cases, it will be more appropriate for us to wait until local procedures have been completed. We try to work together with employers whenever possible and we are always willing to discuss individual cases.
Our Policy on Notification of Fitness to Practise Investigations and Outcomes explains what information we will provide to third parties, such as employers, about the investigation and outcome of complaints against osteopaths.
