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...

What is the difference between a chiropractor and an osteopath?

I came across this discussion on mumsnet “I have also spoken to a representative of the General Chiropractic Council and asked him what the difference is. The answer? There really isn’t one. They call things different names (e.g. in chiropractic, you...

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...

The Chiropractic associations are working on their strategy for pointing out to the General Chiropractic Council that they are failing in their statutory duty to protect the public and set standards for the chiropractic profession. It is important the associations understand this, as they can not moan about the GCC giving registrants a hard...

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”.
