GOSC complaints against osteopaths – Jonathan Goldring is one of the most experienced barristers in the UK to represent osteopaths before the General Osteopathic Council.
Jonathan has considerable experience representing Osteopaths when complaints are made against them to the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). He also represents clients on appeal against Fitness to Practise decisions at the Administrative Court and the Court of Appeal.
Navigating the law and procedure in disciplinary proceedings before the General Osteopathic Council can be a daunting experience for clients. Jonathan has unrivalled knowledge in this arena. He previously sat as a Legal Assessor on the Investigating Committees, Health Committees and Professional Conduct Committees at GOsC advising panels as to the relevant law and procedure. He is intimately familiar with every aspect of the rules and procedures that govern this regulatory body.
Jonathan is a firm believer that early intervention and smart choices are crucial to the final outcome. Clients will often need advice at the Investigating Committee stage when osteopaths make written representations about the case. Knowing what to say and more importantly what not to say can be the difference between success and failure.
Equally as important as the initial advice is good preparation before and high quality representation during hearings. The importance of knowing your audience and knowing your opponent also can not be underestimated. Jonathan is a regular on the GOsC circuit so he is very familiar with most of the key players!
