As Primary Health Care Practitioners, Osteopaths are medically trained, qualified and registered to provide care in the community for people making an initial approach to a medical clinic or practitioner for advice or treatment. GP’s are commonly known providers of primary care.

Osteopaths screen every patient with a thorough case history and appropriate examination, including a neonatal/ paediatric examination for babies or children, in order to assess whether the patient’s issue is suitable for osteopathic treatment, or whether a referral to GP, Specialist or Paediatrician is required.

Your consent will be sought before a referral takes place, and all issues of concern will be discussed with you in order for you to make an informed decision.

If you have any serious concerns regarding your health, call NHS Direct for Urgent need medical help or advice on phone number 111.

For immediate life-threatening emergencies continue to call 999.
