The General Osteopathic Council
The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) regulates the practice of osteopathy in the United Kingdom. By law osteopaths must be registered with us in order to practise.
GOsC work with the public and osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by registering qualified professionals, and setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.
The Institute os Osteopathy
The Institute of Osteopathy (iO) is the UK’s leading 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.
The Association of Animal Osteopaths
The AAO focuses on quality care, education and safety for our patients, to ensure that all those who work in this field and are members of the AAO work within their scope of practice and in line with our Code of Conduct. We also work in conjunction with the Register of Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP), which endorses increased awareness of educational standards and levels of professionalism in the animal manual therapy world. This ensures that the best possible levels of experience and/or education are at the heart of every practitioner.
