Peter Dixon DC, FCC, FBCA
Practising in Wiltshire and Cornwall
Graduated AECC, 1984
Member of the British Chiropractic Association
Fellow of the College of Chiropractors
Chairman of the GCC
I was very closely involved in the professions decision, and subsequent negotiations, in the 1980s and early 1990s that led to the Chiropractors Act in 1994 (the first year of my BCA presidency).
My experiences from within the BCA ECU WFC & GCC have given me a unique perspective of the profession on a national, and international level, and have allowed me to develop my skills as a chairman; running meetings of representatives from different organisations within the profession and seeking harmonious and productive outcomes where possible. I have a passion for this profession, and a determination to seek solutions to the many problems that face us.
The GCC is a very potent tool for the profession in the UK but it can only be truly effective if it is seen to serve the needs of the profession. That means running a fair but firm ‘fitness to practice’ regime, but also interacting with all of the other stakeholders in the game in such a way as to promote and establish the Chiropractic profession as a key member of the HealthCare Team in this country. I believe that I have shown that that is my goal, and I have demonstrated an ability to lead the profession and act as an ambassador for it.
If elected to the council for a second term then I shall continue to pursue that goal with both wit and enthusiasm.
