I too have decided to resign from the BUPA scheme after over 20 years as a provider. It is highly unethical that any osteopath should be told how to treat their patients by someone /a body of people, who has not met the patient. I am surprised and disappointed that the GOsC has not intervened as "protecting the public" is their reason d'etre. It is very clear that this action by BUPA would have a highly detrimental effect on our profession if most practitioner do not resign/complain from the scheme. Financial dignity and recompense for our skills is important, however autonomy of how we treat is vital for osteopathy to survive!
Lets all get fully behind this great initiative (Friday 13th)that Gareth has begun on our behalf.
