Registered with the General Osteopathic Council
Ruth Rose, the osteopath at City Osteopaths in Manchester, is registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), which oversees the Statutory Register of Osteopaths, is one of the 13 UK health and social care regulators set up to protect the public so that whenever you see a health or social care professional, you can be sure they meet the required standards.
Because it is a legal requirement for all osteopaths to register with the GosC, all osteopaths must meet the standards for registration: Osteopaths must hold recognised qualifications, be covered by approved and appropriate professional indemnity insurance, and pass a criminal records check.
Osteopathy became the first complementary medicine profession to be accorded statutory recognition, under the 1993 Osteopaths Act.
You can find out more about the GOsC at the General Osteopathic Council website.
