Sooner or later the General Chiropractic Council will have to give the dogs a few bones.

The “Nightingale Collaboration” is up in arms because no charges were brought against pharmacists who recommended homeopathy as a protection against malaria.

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...

Subluxation – An historical concept? We dont think so ! The UCA starts the fight back.

As one of the original founder members of the UCA, can I say how delighted I was to get this postcard in my post today. We formed the UCA to defend traditional chiropractic practice and in recent years the UCA has failed to recognise the light at the end of the tunnel was a...

At the recent European Chiropractic Union conference in London BCA president Richard Brown outlined  why the UK regulatory model is a “cracking success”, I wonder if the pun got a laugh or were there chiropractors present who knew the reality of regulation for the chiropractic profession.
