Formerly the British School of Osteopathy, the University College of Osteopathy has been a leading provider of osteopathic education, research and healthcare for over 100 years.
Its teaching clinic, the UCO Clinic, is the largest of its kind in the UK, providing high-quality, affordable osteopathic treatment at subsidised rates (roughly 50% of the cost of seeing a private osteopath). Based on Southwark Bridge Road in modern, purpose-built facilities, the UCO Clinic delivers almost 40,000 appointments each year, and can assist with a range of short-term and chronic conditions such as:
- General aches and pains, including arthritic and joint pain
- Hip, knee, ankle and foot problems
- Shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist problems
- Muscle spasms and muscular tensions
- Sports injuries
- Headaches and migraines arising from the neck.
The Clinic also provides specialist care for specific patient groups including expectant mothers, children and babies and sports people, as well as a number of award-winning free community clinics for vulnerable or disadvantaged patients.
As a teaching clinic the majority of appointments are delivered by senior students of the University College of Osteopathy, under the supervision of experienced, qualified tutors. They also offer an Associates Clinic on the evenings and weekends which is delivered by qualified osteopaths at a higher rate per appointment.

Contributing to our 2015 gift collection campaign, Together at Christmas.
Last year’s Together at Christmas proved to be an immense success with 4000 gifts donated and wrapped to over 1,300 people supported by 24 charities based in the Bankside and Southwark area.
The British School of Osteopathy was one of the 60 local businesses to host a Christmas box, collecting a variety of gifts from their workforce to be given to local charities for the homeless, vulnerably housed and elderly people. Each gift donated from The British School of Osteopathy truly made a real difference to the lives of those in the local Bankside area who may have otherwise not received a Christmas present.
