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.

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. 

Find an osteopath

The UK Statutory Register of Osteopaths includes all those allowed to practise osteopathy in the UK. Use our Register to find a local osteopath or check that someone is registered as an osteopath. Search for an osteopath by surname, postcode, town, county, country or registration number.

See the June/July issue of the osteopath for more about how sole practitioner, Alex Black, got even better results for a patient after sharing ideas in a case-based discussion.
