Amit Patel’s Freedom of Information  request to the CHRE.

Just noticed this on the “comments” and it deserves a more prominent place. Many chiropractors think Coats demise will ring in a new dawn for chiropractic in the UK. The fact is Coats operated the way she did, because she thought it was good for the Chiropractic profession, Richard Rummary tried to point out...

The complaint against Peter Dixon was not sent to the PCC and he was able to remain as chair of the General Chiropractic Council

Margaret Coats legal interpretation of the chiropractic act is different from Osteopaths, every complaint where there is a case to answer is supposed to be sent to the Professional Conduct Committee. There is an exception to this rule, except when someone in the chief executives office writes on the complaint “not to be sent...

The General Chiropractic Council needs your registration fees to survive and will not put up fees for fear many chiropractors will come off the register

When the GCC hit financial difficulties in 2009, the CHRE wanted them to increase the registration fees. Realising this would likely “result in a walk away from registration sufficient to outweigh from a time-limited increase in the annual retention fee” the GCC increased the Mortgage to cover the £2,029,598, which they estimated as the...

 Graham Donald is acting chairman of the Investigating Committee (IC) his CV on the GCC website describes him as a “retired Civil Servant” with an impeccable background perfect for the IC you would have thought. However nothing is at it seems at the GCC when you give a little scratch to the veneer Margaret...

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

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

  IN 2002 Margaret Coats made a complaint against BCA chiropractor Jesper Jensen. She got David Byfield then a mere tutor at WIOC to write a report on his opinion of the website. After reading my rebuttal of the Byfields report Coats decided to be more specific and focus on a number of statements...

Got an urgent e-mail from Harry Cayton OBE; the Chief Executive of Council for Health Care Regulatory Excellence (CHRE)

Received an e-mail from Harry Cayton OBE the chief executive of the CHRE. This is the body that year after year congratulates Margaret Coats and her storm troopers for the excellent job they do, prosecuting vexations cases, harassing and threatening patients who dont want to complain and wasting millions of pounds of chiropractors money...

“Scientist”, Stephen Hughes has “specialist” knowledge in chiropractic care of children. It is an absolute disgrace that he has been admonished by the General Chiropractic Council.

“Scientist”, Stephen Hughes has “specialist” knowledge in chiropractic care of children. It is an absolute disgrace that he has been admonished by the General Chiropractic Council.

When I ran for a place on the General Chiropractic Council I was nominated by 5 chiropractors who had been the subject of vexatious complaints which had been thrown out by the GCC. I warned it could be you. While a member of council I warned BCA president Tony Metcalfe of the problems within...

Any nutter can make a complaint to a regulator, its the idiots who act on vexatious complaints you have to wonder about.

For year people have been making vexatious cases against chiropractors. The five people who nominated me as a candidate for council all had vexatious complaints made against them that were dismissed. My favourite vexatious complaint was the one against Bridgit Gilmore because her cat left a few hairs on the floor. None of these...

Unfortunately Peter Dixon and the General Chiropractic Council are 3 years and 700 complaints too late.

  This interesting little ditty in Peter Dixons Newsletter to the profession proposing  consensual disposal of vexatious complaints(see below). This is something I was pushing for in November 2007 when I was on council, I know for a fact Dana Greene proposed a similar system a number of times during her time as a...

Its getting harder and harder for Coats and Dixon to mislead the profession. There is a paper trail, You just need to know where to look in GCC “closed” minutes.

Coats and Dixon were in Birmingham today telling the gathered chiropractors how passionate they are about chiropractic. Apparently Margaret Coats sees a chiropractor regularly, I am sorry I dont buy that, she knows so little about chiropractic and  who would be stupid enough to take on a patient, who might write to Alan Hennes...
