Some high profile names in the profession resigning, what a shame! BUPA should prepare themselves for rising costs spent on injections and surgery! If all the osteopaths stick together and refuse the current terms, at least in a particular region, then BUPA will be forced to back down as they did when they tried this on the Opthalmologists the other day. A little appreciated side issue to all this is that for years BUPA and some other insurers have classed osteopathy as "complimentary" and therefore will often not allow policy holders as much spend on osteopathy as they do for physiotherapy. A common policy is to allow £500 to physio but only £250 for osteopathy. The profession and public should hold out for this to be changed too! Physio friends & colleagues I know are right behind us on this issue!
