Frequently Asked Question
Most osteopaths work in the private sector, either alone or in a group practice, and some offer services through the NHS. In some areas, doctors are able to refer patients to an osteopath for treatment funded by the NHS. To find out if NHS treatment is available in your area, speak to your GP and/or contact: 1. If you are in England - your local clinical commissioning group. 2. If you are in Scotland - your local health board. 3. If you are in Wales - your local health board. 4. If you are in Northern Ireland - your local health and social service board. There is more information on who to contact in your region on the NHS website.
