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.

Check the Register

By law, osteopaths must be registered with us to practise in the UK.

COVID-19: Some osteopaths have temporarily closed their clinics. A number are still offering urgent and/or remote consultations.

You can search the Register by surname, postcode, town, county, country or registration number.

We are encouraging osteopaths to remain 
up-to-date with all public health statements and guidance issued in light of the recent outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Following recent government recommendations, our staff are working remotely and have limited phone access. If you have any queries, please email: covid19@osteopathy.org.uk.
