The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) have updated our Guidance for Fitness to Practise Committees on Imposing Interim Suspension Orders and its Practice Note on Undertakings.

The Guidance on Interim Suspension Orders “is now clearer on the need for committees to be proportionate when considering whether or not to use these orders. Committees are required to balance the need for public protection with the interests of the osteopath when making these decisions.”

On its website, GOsC said:

“Our Practice Note on Undertakings has been updated to provide clarity on the circumstances in which undertakings might be a more proportionate alternative to an interim suspension order. Undertakings are solemn written promises by an osteopath during a fitness to practise investigation, explaining how they will restrict their practice until a final decision is made about their case.”
