At Worcester Chiropractic Clinic, our chiropractors are registered with the three main professional bodies; the General Chiropractic Council, British Chiropractic Association and Royal College of Chiropractors.
This means that you can be sure they practice to approved and regulated standards. It also means that you are likely to be able to use your health insurance to cover the costs of any treatment.
In addition to being registered, Worcester Chiropractic Clinic has also been awarded the highest level quality mark from the Royal College of Chiropractors.
You can read more about each of the professional chiropractic bodies below:
General Chiropractic Council
The regulatory body for the chiropractic profession in the UK is the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). This is a statutory body that governs chiropractors in the same capacity as the General Medical Council and the General Dental Council govern their respective registrants.
The General Chiropractic Council set the Code of Practice by which chiropractors must abide and enforce penalties for breaches of conduct. It is a legal requirement that all chiropractors are registered with the GCC.
Royal College of Chiropractors
The Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC) is an independent professional body committed to the promotion and advancement of standards of chiropractic care for patients.
The Royal College funds and oversees research within the UK, as well as guiding educational institutions and continuing professional development. The work of the Royal College is tremendously important to maintaining standards within neuromusculoskeletal medicine.
It is part of our commitment to evidence based medicine that all of our chiropractors at Worcester Chiropractic Clinic are members of the Royal College of Chiropractors.
We also actively engage in research with the Royal College and two of our chiropractors are approved mentors in the Royal College’s programme for training newly qualified chiropractors.
British Chiropractic Association
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) is the largest chiropractic association within the UK. The association promotes evidence based chiropractic and provides a link between the Royal College of Chiropractors and members of the public.
