Is my osteopath trained?

All osteopaths are required to undertake a 4-5 year honours degree, and must complete additional clinical exams, assessed by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), before being admitted onto the statutory register. It is a criminal offence to describe yourself as an osteopath in the UK, unless you are registered with the GOsC. The GOsC is responsible for maintaining the Statutory register, the regulation of osteopathy degree courses and the regulation of the profession.

Every year, Osteopaths must complete, and submit for assessment, evidence of continual learning and development, known as Continued Professional Development (CPD).

Osteopaths at Jane Jeater Osteopathy are CRB checked, and have current first aid certificates. We are also registered with the Information Commissioners Office under the Data protection Act.
