UPDATES:OSTEOPATHS: GOVERNING BOARDS

Osteopaths in Britain are finally to be given statutory professional recognition.


The Osteopaths Bill is making its way through Parliament and will pave the way for the creation of a statutory governing body, the General Osteopathic Council. Only those practitioners meeting the required standards of education and competence and registered with the GOC will be able to call themselves osteopaths.


The GOC is modelled on the General Medical Council, the body that governs doctors, but it seems the newcomer may have made some improvements on the older body. The GOC includes the provision for compulsory refresher training to be made a condition of registration.
