Our team at Bexhill Osteopathic Practice
Nigel Bassett D.O. GOsC Reg. Ost.
Initially he joined practices in Lewis, Seaford and London and commenced the Hastings Osteopathic Practice on a part-time basis in the same year.
As the practice developed he gradually reduced his involvement in the other practices and in 1988 opened the Rye Osteopathic Practice, followed by the Bexhill Osteopathic Practice in 1992.
These practices have developed over more than 30 years to offering a wide spectrum of osteopathic techniques provided by thirteen osteopaths in total.
Nigel also joined the faculty at the European School of Osteopathy initially as an assistant lecturer in 1986 and went on to lecture in orthopaedics, osteopathic medicine and osteopathic business practice. Throughout this period he has been a clinical tutor to the undergraduate students at the college and remains a member of faculty.
The aim of the practices, under the guidance of Nigel, has always been to look at the body from a holistic view. By keeping the fees at as reasonable a level as possible, we aim to enable as many people as possible to take advantage of the benefits of osteopathic treatment.
During the years when GPs had Fundholding contracts, the practices were amongst the first to receive patients from the NHS on a funded basis. This option grew considerably over the ten year period that this system was in place, which led to GP referrals that continue to this date. However, since the removal of Fundholding, this is now on a fee paying basis.
As well as growing up in the locality, Nigel and his family continue to live in the area and be active in the local community.
