General Osteopathic Council

an associated group of BGi.uk

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.

We work with the public and the osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.

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.
