Dawn of a new age or more smoking mirrors from Coats,Dixon and General Chiropractic Council.

  The McTimoney Association seems very optimistic about the latest discussions with the GCC. The fact that members of the Alliance and the BCA sent out their own interpretation of the meeting should start bells ringing. I would advise everbody to read Tony Blairs autobiography before getting too excited. Blairs biggest regret is not...

ASA will not reveal details of the chiropractic experts who are advising them. You know how to boil frogs?

  I wrote to the ASA asking them about their “Chiropractic experts” (I suspect they are “academics” who are on the GCC council). I also asked about the advice Osteopaths are giving their members in relation to making claims regarding digestive and circulatory problems. http://www.chiropracticlive.com/?p=826 This week the GCC met with all the UK...

“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...

Oh Dear! The bit I like best is in the last paragraph I believe the BCA President is an avid reader of this blog and advises  “dont believe all you read. In recent months Ive seen comments made about the BCA that are clearly designed to damage its reputation and adversely affect the confidence...

It would appear the GCC acted illegally when they instructed private investigators to spy on me.

  The story that a “Council illegally spied on family during row over catchment area” has been covered extensively in today’s press. I have been waiting for the result of this hearing before revealing details (see below for starters) of the GCCs covert activities and issuing complaints against the GCC to the Department of...

Why is the osteopathic profession growing at a much faster rate than the chiropractic profession in the UK? Are they just nicer people?

There are twice as many Osteopeaths in the UK as chiropractors when  only five years ago it was a third, there are possibly ten times more chiropractors practicing around the world than Osteopaths. When I was on the GCC council the Registrar was refusing registration to about 50% of overseas applicants, others might say...

Will this be payback for the misery Margaret Coats and the General Chiropractic Council caused chiropractors in recent years

Four years ago I tried to get a few hundred chiropractors to make vexatious complaints against each other, to tie the GCC up in paperwork for years. Chiropractors thought everything would be better after the GCC elections and regulatory reform, complaints happened to the chiropractor down the road. If the IC find there is...

Chiroquackery! by Gert van der Walt

The worst thing about being thrown off the General Chiropractic Council, was the indifference shown by the chiropractic profession. Apathy is what has allowed the GCC/BCA alliance to promote their biomedical agenda for chiropractic.  In recent months I have sensed that attitudes are changing but few were prepared to put their head above the...

    “Events of the last twenty years in the UK have elevated chiropractic from relative obscurity to a respected and regulated healthcare profession. The BCA has been integral to this process of evolution. Yet we must never lose sight of the fact that reputations are hard earned but quickly lost.”   It is...

Last year I interviewed 8 prospective new graduates from AECC and asked each...

A typical GCC complaint. Due to a chiropractors incompetence or just bad luck that patient came in?

When I was on the register I would often see cases come before the Professional Conduct Committee and you would think there but for the………. These “allegations” were just posted on the GCC website, I know nothing about the chiropractor except the chiropractor is a woman and the patient is a woman who returned...
