Consultation on draft guidance on insurance requirements for osteopaths

We are consulting on guidance which has been created to provide information about the insurance requirements for osteopaths and those intending to register as osteopaths with the GOsC.


You need to have adequate professional indemnity insurance (PII) and public liability insurance in place while registered with the GOsC. The guidance sets out the difference between these types of insurance and the key points to consider.


The purpose of this consultation is to:

  • Seek feedback about the clarity of the guidance to ensure that is clear as it can be and
  • help ensure osteopaths are meeting the necessary requirements.


Please download and read the consultation guidance before responding to this consultation.
