The tutors at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic have been ripping off their students and these are the chiropractors who are going to sort it out.

A few months ago I got a call asking me to blog about a scandal that was unfolding at WIOC. A slush fund had been set up at Glamorgan as a perk to supplement the income of tutors. Presumably its tax free and its an incentive to work there by funding tutors BCA membership,...

Over 90% of BCA chiropractors, not guilty of unprofessional conduct! Is that a good result? Could it have been prevented?

I love the part in the movie Spartacus where the Romans want to crucify Spartacus and Tony Curtis stands up and says I am Spartacus and one by one other slaves stepped forward in support of Spartacus choosing to die together with honour. So far 10% of BCA chiropractors have been found guilty of...

A long time ago now, I was walking up the mountains in north Italy with an uncle of mine. I was about 14 years old. I remember asking him (in Flemish): “dad is a GP and you are a chiropractor, what do you do differently?” To which he slowly replied: “We are both trying...

The associations have come together. First thing they need to say to the General Chiropractic Council; Margaret Coats must go.

On Thursday I received many e-mails notifying me of the joint statement from the four associations expressing “the entire professions lack of confidence in its regulation”. I am absolutely delighted the associations have made this statement.  Which confirms the findings of the 2005 survey which found 77% of the profession had no confidence in...

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.

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.

Many chiropractors are facing the same charges and could pool their information. The vast majority of BCA chiropractors have taken the BCA advice and...

“Don’t believe all you read” says BCA President Richard Brown

Who remembers the BCA propaganda newsletter the “Chiropractic News” Let me start with November 4th 2004. The day the BCA sold out their members for cheap insurance, as a result  BCA members are not covered for the legal costs of skeptic complaints, interprofessional disputes, the fury of scorned girlfriends and wives etc etc. Those...
