Osteopathic practitioners (osteopaths) are now regarded in New Zealand law as being on the same playing field as all other registered health practitioners. Registration means your health practitioner is competent, fit to practise and accountable. As such, it provides a framework for ensuring that your health and safety as a patient or consumer is paramount.

These pages are designed to provide information to anyone using the services of a registered osteopath about your rights, and what to do if you feel that your rights may have been breached.



  • Child Health Consultation

    The Council invites you to complete the submission form on child and adolescent health in osteopathy if you have not already completed the survey that was recently sent to all registrants.
