The beginning of the end? Part three
It’s only taken 433 days to get this far.
On Saturday, I received three batches of letters from the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), sent Recorded Delivery.
These letters are the formal notices that a complaint against a chiropractor has been considered by the Investigating Committee, that they have decided that there is a case to answer and that the complaint will go before their Professional Conduct Committee (PCC).
The letters consist of the formal notice, the Notice of Allegation and some of the website pages that contained the claims I complained of and where they were using the title ‘Dr’. The Notices of Allegation are all very similar to this redacted one; straight and to the point. (There’s lots to be said about the documents and I’ll cover that in a separate blog post.)
I have so far received these formal notices for 93 chiropractors.
There will be far more to follow.
Not that the GCC have told me that directly. But they did publish some numbers last week in preparation for their Council meeting on 18th August.
Separating out all the website complaints from other complaints, they give the following figures:
|Year||Total||Awaiting decision||No case to answer||Referred to PCC||Withdrawn|
Simon Perry submitted a total of 50 complaints and so far, 36 of those have been passed to the PCC, six dismissed and eight still (at that time at least) to be decided.
So it looks like my postie is going to be very busy. Again.
