No, GP referrals are not necessary as most patients ‘self refer’. Patients are encouraged to keep their GP and osteopath fully informed so that their medical records are kept up to date and complete.
Yes, extensive and stringent training over four years ensures that osteopaths have the necessary skills to care for you in a safe and gentle manner. Training is also given so the osteopath also understands when NOT to treat a patient as this is just as important as treating the patient. By law, osteopaths also have to register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), the profession’s statutory regulator. Find more information about the GOsC here
Patients of all ages, including babies and children, are all welcome.

What do our patients think?
Really nice people and service. Very relaxed, informal but professional. I didn't really have anything 'wrong' but every now and again I like to get checked over. Some tight vertebrae, tight muscles in my neck and thigh were identified and loosened off - as Olwen said I'd be an inch taller, not sure how long it lasted for though. As a desk worker Olwen also gave some really useful information on posture and seat setup that made quite a difference, can't recommend Leek Ostopathic Health Centre enough!Marc Briand
It really is the place to go if your in pain. The treatment is first class!Melody Cartledge
Excellent Osteopath with treatments for M.E patients - using the 'Perrin Technique'Kathryn Turnock
M.E. is a very debilitating condition to live with. I. like all other people living with M.E. are looking for ways to make myself well again. I have been fortunate to find Helen and the Perrin Technique. With Helen’s treatment, support and careful pacing I’m slowly getting my life back.M.E Patient
Fabulous! Helen White has been brilliant with both myself & my baby. I took Siân at 4 weeks old for help with her neck. Since born, she hadn't been able to look right very well. 3 treatments later, she was totally better. Such a relief. Sleeping & feeding improved. I have arthritis & I decided to give it a go for myself. Thank goodness I did. Huge improvement. Recommended to everyone.Jane Wood
Helen sorted my Mum out quickly when she had back problem. 5 stars!Catrina Clulow
