Search the Register
You may be able to find an osteopath in your area by using the Register search on this page. If you are unable to find an osteopath, you can seek advice for an urgent medical problem from NHS 111.
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. Osteopaths are also being advised to implement infection control measures in accordance with UK Health Security Agency guidance. So you may find, for example, the osteopath may be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), spacing out their appointments to allow time to clean the room between patients, and they may be minimising waiting times within the clinic. These measures will be aimed at keeping patients and practitioners safe, and should not affect the high levels of care that patients are entitled to expect from osteopaths.
How to search
Use our interactive map of the UK (click on Browse by county above) for lists of osteopaths in specific counties and large cities. Put your cursor on a county to see the county name; click on the county to see the list.
If the osteopath you are looking for is not listed here, this does not necessarily mean they are not registered with us. The spelling of their name might not be correct, or they may have changed their name. If you can't find the osteopath you are looking for or you need further help, contact us on email@example.com or phone 020 7357 6655 x242.
Clicking on an osteopath's name links to a page with details about the practitioner, including their registration number, year of qualification, year of registration and contact details.

Fitness to practise decisions
Some fitness to practise decisions are indicated on the Register - please see the guidance on the right-hand side of this page for more information. Admonishments of osteopaths and registrants who have been removed from the Register after a fitness to practise hearing do not appear on the Register but information about these decisions are available on the Hearings findings page of this website and in our annual Fitness to Practise Reports.
