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...

Its getting harder and harder for Coats and Dixon to mislead the profession. There is a paper trail, You just need to know where to look in GCC “closed” minutes.

Coats and Dixon were in Birmingham today telling the gathered chiropractors how passionate they are about chiropractic. Apparently Margaret Coats sees a chiropractor regularly, I am sorry I dont buy that, she knows so little about chiropractic and  who would be stupid enough to take on a patient, who might write to Alan Hennes...

Cortical Neuroplasticity With Spinal Manipulation, Exercise, Injury and Pain

Before “bigots” get too excited and start Blah, Blah, Blah “no proof”, quack, Blah, quack, Blah, quack, Blah. Let me explain; no one is saying this is proof of anything.

Being kind and friendly helps patients get better.

As the best chiropractor in Europe I had always hoped it was because of my superior adjusting skills and now I know its because I kissed the blarney stone when I was young and like to have a good laugh with my clients. CAM bigots get very excited because homeopathy does not make any...

The results of the first 18 Professional Conduct Committee Hearings have been posted on the GCC website (Below the chiropractor who talked to his patient in his car).

If Peter Dixon cares about the chiropractic profession as he claims, he should go now and take Coats with him or risk Self Regulation for chiropractors.

If Peter Dixon cares about the chiropractic profession as he claims, he should go now and take Coats with him or risk Self Regulation for chiropractors.

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.

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”. I am absolutely delighted the associations have made this statement.  Which confirms the findings of the 2005 survey which found 77% of the profession had no confidence in...
