Surely the Danes did not leave the European Chiropractic Union because of General Chiropractic Council chairman Peter Dixon ?

    My first exposure to Chiropractic was in Denmark. I lived there for twelve years in the 80s. Chiropractors are respected as any health care workers should be and the profession is probably more united and better organised than any country in the world. Denmark left the European Chiropractic Union six years ago,...

Did BCA finally find its spine and tell the General Chiropractic Council, its not fit for purpose?

I have heard through the grapevine, that BCA members passed a vote of no confidence in the GCC at their AGM on Saturday, if that is the case its the beginning of the end for Coats and Dixon. Watch the rats on the GCC ship try and dump them in the coming months to...

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...

It would appear the GCC acted illegally when they instructed private investigators to spy on me.

  The story that a “Council illegally spied on family during row over catchment area” has been covered extensively in today’s press. I have been waiting for the result of this hearing before revealing details (see below for starters) of the GCCs covert activities and issuing complaints against the GCC to the Department of...

“Regulators like the General Chiropractic Council have different and inconsistent methods of engaging with patients”

The article below appears in the Health Service Journal. I am not against regulation, I am against bad regulation. Regulation should be there to protect the people who use the service, not to settle interprofessional disputes, or  ex girlfriends with a grudge or for the anti CAM brigade.

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

  Surely in most companies if a “serious” complaint had been made about the chairman of a company he would step down pending the completion of the investigation. The chairman would most definitely not be saying “we will investigate every complaint” Many complaints have been made about GCC management and to my knowledge nobody...

Former General Chiropractic Council member, Dana Greens letter to new council members in December 2007. “GCC is not fit for purpose”

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,...

GCC chair Peter Dixon fiddles while Chiropractic burns

The GCC has decided they have more to fear from the chiropractic sceptics than registered chiropractors. Yesterday The GCC chief executive Margaret Coats saw her salvation in hurrying up the section 60 amendment which would have allowed the Investigating Committee to weed out vexations cases against chiropractors. The furious response of the sceptics to...
