General Osteopathic Council


General Osteopathic Council

The 1993 Osteopaths Act gives osteopaths registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) a similar legal status to doctors and dentists.  The GOsC protects patients by regulating education and professional standards.    

Osteopathy was the first complementary therapy to be granted statutory self-regulation by the government.

Osteopaths typically receive a 4 year full time training in both medicine and osteopathy.  The title ‘Osteopath’ is protected by law and you can be confident that anyone using this title has been fully trained, follows the professional code of practice and has met all the requirements of GOsC.  If you would like any details about the profession of osteopathy please contact the GOsC on 0207 357 6655 or visit their website at
