How do I get referred to an osteopath?

Osteopaths are increasingly working alongside GP’s and other healthcare professionals to provide osteopathic services through the NHS. Access to osteopaths through the NHS does, however, vary according to where you live.

Most patients visit an osteopath in a private clinic, which you can do without a referral from your GP.  Most private practice osteopaths will have appointments available within three days. Consultation fees vary depending on the osteopath and the treatment required, so do enquire when booking your consultation.

Many osteopaths also work with private health insurance companies. Ask your health insurance provider or your osteopath for more information.
