Graduation 2014

On 18th November, nearly one hundred new osteopaths and twenty postgraduates received their degrees in the spectacular surroundings of Methodist Central Hall. Located in the shadow of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, Central Hall is one of London's iconic venues and an apt place to celebrate the many academic and personal achievements of our graduands. The ceremony was overseen by John Lant, Chairman of the Board, Charles Hunt, Principal of the BSO, and Bill Rammell, Vice Chancellor of the University of Bedfordshire all of whom spoke of the excitement, opportunities and challenges of being a new graduate....(more)

#GivingTuesday

The British School of Osteopathy is proud to be a partner of #Giving Tuesday. It’s a simple concept – asking everyone to donate time, money or words to help the causes that they believe in. We want to encourage everyone to get involved – and we would love you to choose the BSO as the charity that you want to support. As you know, we do amazing work in the community, providing free healthcare to people living with HIV, people who are homeless, babies and children and older adults every week. We know that we help many vulnerable people to manage their pain and we hear regularly from our patients about the difference that is made to individual lives....(more)

We also run a weekly clinic at The Royal Free Hospital’s Ian Charleson Day Centre in north-west London, which is generously supported by the Peter Moores Foundation....(more)

Crisis at Christmas

The British School of Osteopathy is working with the charity Crisis to help them provide medical care over the Christmas period to thousands of homeless people. Crisis are expecting over 4,000 homeless guests in their 10 centres across London over Christmas this year. Over 6,500 people slept rough on the streets of London during 2013/14. This figure has doubled in six years and sadly continues to rise. They have over 8,000 volunteers who provide more than 40 services including healthcare appointments, physiotherapy and alternative healing services....(more)

The BSO at War

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day people across the nation pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave service men and women. As this year marks the Centenary of the First World War, we have asked National Osteopathic Archive historian and author, John O'Brien, to write a piece about the British School of Osteopathy during the early part of the 20th Century and how osteopaths contributed to the war effort by offering their skills to injured soldiers....(more)
