How weird is that, I had just posted the blog post announcing I was passing chiropracticlive over to others and I get the message that Coats has retired, has she gone on gardening leave as her interim replacement has been announced? I bet they dont lock her office and ban her from the paper shredder....

The ass keeps digging

Got another  letter from Peter Dixon, apparently I am infringing copyright laws using pictures of him from the GCC Newsletter and must stop. In addition I have been printing malicious gossip about Margaret Coats a  “valued employee” who he has “absolute confidence” in. Dixon States my report that Margaret Coats position is under threat,...

Being kind and friendly helps patients get better.

As the best chiropractor in Europe I had always hoped it was because of my superior adjusting skills and now I know its because I kissed the blarney stone when I was young and like to have a good laugh with my clients. CAM bigots get very excited because homeopathy does not make any...

The Investigating Committee decided these people had a case to answer and the  the PCC looked at the complaint and dismissed them all. Only 680 to...

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...

Is this the beginning of the end of Margaret Coats time as Chief executive of the General Chiropractic Council.

On the 18th of September at the BCA AGM a motion was passed “that the BCA membership had no confidence in GCC’s processes, interpretation and proportionality in its regulation of the chiropractic profession”. My view was they should have named names and stated they had no confidence in Margaret Coats and Peter Dixon which...

To Those going to AGMs in the coming weeks this is my official complaint against the General Chiropractic Council

  “The  joint statement “Working Together” http://www.gcc-uk.org/files/page_file/WorkingTogether_FINAL_16July10.pdf is rather amusing considering all that has happened in recent years. How many statements do chiropractors need before the penny drops, the GCC is not fit for purpose. The statement explains “the roles of the General Chiropractic Council,the chiropractic professional associations and the College of Chiropractors. My...

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...
