Stephen Perry

Director and Principal Osteopath

 

Qualified in 1983, Steve continues to deliver high standards of care and customer service.  

 

As a keen sportsman himself, he enjoys working with sporting injuries and in helping to improve sporting performance.

Barbara Grace

Director and Principal Osteopath

 

Barbara joined the practice as an associate, on graduating in 1988, and never left!  She loves the variety the job can offer but admits to enjoying the challenge of working with the young and developing spine "before too much damage has set in..." or at the other end of the scale, with the elderly, to help "oil the joints".

 

Professionalism and Safety

 

To qualify, an osteopath must study for four to five years for an undergraduate degree. This is similar to a medical degree, with more emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine and includes more than 1,000 hours of training in osteopathic techniques.

 

By law, osteopaths must register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is an offence for anyone to call themselves an osteopath if they are not registered. The British Medical Association’s guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to osteopaths.

Your Reception Team

 

Reception is manned by Jane, Jenny and Betsy. They are your first point of contact and should be able to answer any booking or administrative request.  

 

They will never give clinical advice, but will always relay a message to yourOsteopath, who can then call you back, if you want more specific help.
