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,...

It goes against natural justice for the General Chiropractic Council to set a new bench mark for what constitutes “Unprofessional Conduct” without informing registrants.

After reading my rebuttal of the Byfields report Coats decided to be more specific and focus on a number of statements...

  This is a long posting hopefully it will be worth the effort. For over a hundred years chiropractors fought to protect their unique identity. The enemy is no longer a zealous American Medical Association or critics like the skeptics The enemy are those among our own ranks who want to force all chiropractors...

Highlights of this weeks ECU conference in London: David Byfield – how to make friends and influence Simon Singh

  David Byfield and I have never liked each other since he altered evidence against a BCA colleague for a GCC hearing in 2002. Thats him in in his grim reaper outfit with BCA president Richard Brown (well fed on GCC expenses) and former president Tony Metcalfe (butter would not melt in his mouth)....

BCA and GCC member David Byfield would seem to concur with Simon Singh that the BCA were making bogus claims about the efficacy of chiropractic

Many of the statements made by Simon Sing and Edzard Ernst about chiropractic in their book “Trick or treatment” could have been lifted from David Byfields report and testimony in the GCC V Jesper Jensen case in 2002. I have always believed the Jensen case was brought by the GCC in an effort to...
