Professional Conduct Committee

Many of the cases which have gone before the PCC were vexatious and had little to do with protecting the public and more to do with GCC chief executive Margaret Coats justifying her position policing chiropractors. This has cost millions of pounds. My favourite case to come before the PCC was the chiropractor who was charged with having cat hairs on the clinic floor. The PCC dismissed the complaint: total cost in the region of £60,000

When I ran in the GCC elections in May 2007, I had to get five chiropractors to nominate me. I wanted to get two things across with my nominations, that uniquely I could draw support right across the political spectrum, I am the only chiropractor who has been published in the magazines in all...

Since getting involved with the chiropractic profession in 1990, I have been surprised at the number of incidences I have witnessed where disregard for the rights of students and chiropractors have prevailed.
