Welcome to the General Osteopathic Council website. We regulate the practice of osteopathy
in the United Kingdom. By law osteopaths must be registered with us in order to practise.
 


Season’s greetings from the General Osteopathic Council
and our best wishes for 2015

We work with the public and osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by registering qualified professionals, and setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.

Please note that Register information about some osteopaths’ date of registration may not be correct, due to technical difficulties.
