The Statutory Register of the General Osteopathic Council (G.Os.C.) opened on 9 May 1998. The title "osteopath" became protected by law from 9 May 2000. As a result it is a criminal offence, liable to prosecution, to describe oneself as an osteopath in the UK unless registered with the G.Os.C.
The G.Os.C. regulates, promotes and develops the profession of osteopathy, maintaining a Statutory Register of those entitled to practice osteopathy. Only practitioners meeting the high standards of safety and competency are eligible to join this register. Proof of good health, good character and professional indemnity insurance cover is also a requirement. It is also now a requirement for all osteopaths to take part in a continual education process called continual professional development (C.P.D) This is administered by the G.Os.C. and ensures that your osteopath is up to date with legislation and accepted practice standards.This practice strongly supports C.P.D.
All Osteopaths have to be Registered with the General Osteopathic Council (G.Os.C) by law. All the Osteopaths at the practice are registered with the G.Os.C. http://www.osteopathy.org.uk/
