Changes to our Website Content

by / Tuesday, 28 February 2017 / Published in Company News, Uncategorised

Our website is currently undergoing a number of text changes as as result of new guidance from the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA). The ASA has teamed up with the General Osteopathic Council to provide guidance to UK osteopaths who are on the GOsC register.

The mainly relates to marketing claims for pregnant women, children and babies and provides examples of what kind of claims can, and can’t, be made for these patient groups.

The new ASA guidance is intended to help osteopaths talk about the healthcare we can  provide in a way that complies with the Advertising Codes to ensure consumers are not misled in any way. It provides some basic principles and many examples of claims that are, and aren’t, acceptable. As a result of this new code, our pages for  osteopathic care for pregnant women, children and babies have been updated.

Our page on Laser Therapy is currently in the process of being re-written to met new ASA standards. If you have any queries on the treatments we can provide, please feel free to call us for a chat on 01773 829986 or 01773 819219.
