Our social media

Our aim in using social media is to:

  • provide information to anyone with an interest in osteopathic care and our work
  • provide bite-sized pieces of information accessible to people on the move
  • communicate with people who might not usually visit this website
  • keep stakeholders, followers and fans up to date with new developments
  • enable our fans and followers to contribute to our work through consultations, feedback and more.

Facebook

LaptopWe will post on our Facebook page items of news and information and links to further information that we think will be of interest, and invitations to send us feedback and views. We welcome feedback and ideas and try to respond wherever possible. However, we are not able to respond individually to all the messages we receive.

Any responses that we do publish are correct at the time of posting. In some cases we may pass comments on to the relevant people within the GOsC.

We will remove any abusive comments and derogatory remarks to ensure that this page remains a pleasant, safe, positive and enjoyable place for all – see our Facebook user policy or ‘What we expect of users’, below.

We will update and monitor our Facebook page during office hours (9.00 – 5.00 Monday to Friday).

Twitter

We will post up to two or three Tweets a day, including items of news and information, links to further information that we think will be of interest, invitations to send us feedback and views, re-tweets of relevant news and information.

If abusive behaviour continues we will take action to prevent the perpetrators from having access to or following our Facebook and Twitter pages.
