WHO CAN CALL THEMSELVES A CHIROPRACTOR?
To use the title of chiropractor, or to imply you are a chiropractor in the UK, it is a legal requirement to be registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).
This is good news for patients as the Council are responsible,by law, for:
- checking people who apply for registration to make sure that they have a chiropractic qualification, are of good character and are physically and mentally fit
- set and monitor standards of education and training
- set standards of practice and conduct
- deal with any complaints about the conduct or practice of chiropractors
HOW CAN I CHECK IF MY CHIROPRACTOR IS REGISTERED WITH THE GCC?
All of the Shoreham Chiropractic Clinic team are registered with the General Chiropractic Council.
If you want to check that a chiropractor is registered, please phone the GCC on 0845 601 1796 (the call will be charged at local rates). Or you can look on their website at www.gcc-uk.org, which lists chiropractors in alphabetical and geographical order.
