Hey Ann,

Most osteopaths are non-NHS, with fees usually in the region of 50 to 100 an hour.

There's no need for a referral, unless you are using health insurance, in which, even then, you may be able to self-refer with your insurers approval. If you are using your insurance, check with your insurer.

if not, and you don't have a recommendation from someone, I suggest that the General Osteopathic Council for Great Britain is a good place to loo. They only list registered osteopaths, so providing a degree of reassurance that who you are seeing is qualified.

You can find them at www.osteopathy.org.uk.

If an osteopath then refers you for further treatment, most will also be able to give you an idea of the costs involved ahead of time, and will be happy to coordinate with your GP if you choose to return to NHS care.

The good news is that there's a wide selection of osteopaths local to Chiswick, so I'm sure you will find someone with whom you feel comfortable.

Hope you feel better soon.
