Just goes to show how little Professor Edzard Ernst knows about chiropractic

  Professor Edzard Ernst is professor of complementary medicine at the Peninsula Medical School, University of Exeter and in his latest article in Pulse he announces to GPs the revelation that “There is a Division in UK Chiropractic” . Correct me if I am wrong here. Is this the same Edzard Ernst who for...

Take advantage of this one hour free legal advice from a specialist lawyer before putting yourself at the mercy of the GCC and vested interests at a closed hearing.

Don’t know if chiropractors are aware of this offer but it sounds like an offer worth investigating considering the vested interests that are coming to play with the mass complaints. Many chiropractors are facing the same charges and could pool their information. The vast majority of BCA chiropractors have taken the BCA advice and...

Has the General Chiropractic Council changed its MO already? Can a leopard change its spots?

Received this in yesterdays post. For about five seconds I thought how can I be so horrible to this pleasant friendly elder lady. This must be a first; an “unreserved apology” from Margaret Coats for not acknowledging my complaint sooner.

The CHRE does not have the authority or the will to investigate the General Chiropractic Council

The president of the BCA Richard Brown has proposed that all associations collectively seek a meeting with the CHRE after the BCAs vote of No Confidence in the GCC. I had to laugh when I heard that one, it shows how little he knows. I started trying to make complaints about the GCC in...

Did BCA finally find its spine and tell the General Chiropractic Council, its not fit for purpose?

I have heard through the grapevine, that BCA members passed a vote of no confidence in the GCC at their AGM on Saturday, if that is the case its the beginning of the end for Coats and Dixon. Watch the rats on the GCC ship try and dump them in the coming months to...

To Those going to AGMs in the coming weeks this is my official complaint against the General Chiropractic Council

  “The  joint statement “Working Together” http://www.gcc-uk.org/files/page_file/WorkingTogether_FINAL_16July10.pdf is rather amusing considering all that has happened in recent years. How many statements do chiropractors need before the penny drops, the GCC is not fit for purpose. The statement explains “the roles of the General Chiropractic Council,the chiropractic professional associations and the College of Chiropractors. My...

The General Chiropractic Council is not fit for purpose, how many times do chiropractors need to be told this before they act?

It is fair to say having a complaint made against you that alleges you are guilty of “professional incompetence” must be pretty stressful. Margaret Coats and her team of Rottweiler’s spend 18 months putting a case together. Then some months ago they would have allocated three days in September for the hearing, appointed a...
