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

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.
