Within seven days after a hearing, we aim to publish on this website the decision of the committee and details of any sanctions applied to the osteopath.

If the sanction applied is an undertaking, conditions of practice or suspension, this will be shown next to the osteopath's name on the Register, for as long as the sanction applies.

Our Fitness to Practise Publication Policy sets out how, and for how long, we publish on this page information relating to the decisions of the fitness to practise committees. Our Policy on Notification of Fitness to Practise Investigations and Outcomes explains what information we will seek from registrants who are the subject of complaints, and the information we will provide to third parties about the investigation and outcome of such complaints.


This table contains details of osteopaths who have given an Undertaking (a solemn promise) as to how they intend to conduct their practice. Click on an osteopath's name to read details of the Undertaking.

Fitness to Practise Annual Report

Our Fitness to Practise Reports, published annually, include details of the decisions made by the PCC and any sanctions applied. When the committee investigates an allegation and decides that it is not well founded, the osteopath can ask for this to be recorded in the next Fitness to Practise Report.
