The General Osteopathic Council regulates osteopaths in the UK

The General Osteopathic Council regulates osteopaths in the UK


We work with the public and the osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.


COVID-19: We are encouraging osteopaths to remain up-to-date with all public health statements and guidance issued regarding COVID-19. Find out more on our COVID-19 hub



Check the Register

In the context of COVID-19, osteopaths are being advised to use their professional judgement, in discussion with patients, to determine the best course of action in terms of treatment, and the options available. They are being advised to ensure they explain these options clearly so you are able to give your informed consent.

By law, osteopaths must be registered with us to practise in the UK. You can search the Register by surname, postcode, town, county, country or registration number.
