The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) regulates the practice of osteopathy in the United Kingdom. By law osteopaths must be registered with the GOsC in order to practise in the UK.
The over-arching objective of the GOsC is the protection of the public. This involves the pursuit of the following objectives:
a) protecting, promoting and maintaining the health, safety and well-being of the public;
b) promoting and maintaining public confidence in the profession of osteopathy; and
c) promoting and maintaining proper professional standards and conduct for members of that profession
The iO is the UK’s professional membership organisation for registered Osteopaths. The purpose of the institute is to unite, promote, develop and support the Osteopathic profession, to improve public health and patient care.
Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare, based on the principle that the way your body moves influences how it functions. Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently.
Over 30,000 people every day visit an osteopath suffering from a variety of conditions including neck or back pain, joint or muscular pain, sports injuries, recurring headaches and more. Many patients are pregnant mothers, unsettled children, or those with work strain, or pain and stiffness related to advancing years.
