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.
If you require this information, please contact us on 020 7357 6655 x229.
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.
The UK Statutory Register of Osteopaths includes all those who are allowed to practise osteopathy in the UK.
You can use our Register to find a local osteopath.
Please note that Register information about some osteopaths’ date of registration may not be correct, due to technical difficulties. If you require this information, please contact us on 020 7357 6655 x229.
Through consultations we invite your views when we are planning new areas of work or changing the way we do things. We are currently seeking views on draft Guidance on the Threshold Criteria for Unacceptable Professional Conduct.
