Anthony G Pusey

Anthony Pusey was an osteopath of international renown who was instrumental in linking the many different strands of academia, medicine and veterinary science with his great passion, osteopathy.


He was born on the 22nd January 1951 and entered the British School of Osteopathy in London in 1969.  After qualification with the Clinical Prize, he maintained his links with the school through undergraduate teaching.  He inspired generations of students with his enthusiasm for his subject, through lectures and demonstrations.  His commitment to education was to continue throughout his career and his crowning achievement in this area was the development of a Master of Science degree for osteopaths in the application of osteopathy in the treatment of animals.


In the 1970’s he moved his practice from Harley Street to Haywards Heath in Sussex, where he was able to develop his osteopathic skill in treating families.  He extended the scope of osteopathy into the treatment of animals, working alongside veterinary surgeons in specialist clinics and presenting papers at international conferences on the subject.  Clinics included Knightsbridge Barracks and the Royal Mews.


In 1999 he became a liveryman in the Worshipful Company of Farriers and a freeman of the City of London.


His infectious enthusiasm and his ability to listen and respect the ideas of the key players in many different walks of life meant that he was able quietly and inexorably to advance his ideas on the role of osteopathy in the medical and veterinary fields. 


He died on 30th March 2007 and his memorial service was held in the Guards Chapel.
