Business as usual; declares General Chiropractic Council chairman Peter Dixon as he rearranges the deckchairs.

Dana has given me permission to publish her letter . Remember although there is a new “Reformed GCC” its the same old minus the “whingers” who wanted to change it for the better. A number of council members wanted to have Dana’s letter put on the agenda for a closed council meeting February 2008,...

  Its amazing how jobs worths can get their fingers out and get the chiropractic Act amended when it affects them personally. The depressing thing is chiropractors accepted this kind of crap from the GCC for years, the sceptics wont. The GCC has reassured the chiropractic associations today that it has asked the Privy...
