The random thoughts of a sceptical activist.
Yet more interesting Advertising Standards Authority adjudications, published yesterday.
In a comment on my last blog post, I mentioned that the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) had appointed two more chiropractors to their Investigation Committee (IC): Aaron Coode and Amanda Jones-Harris. Both work at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (just how did they ever get a .ac.uk domain?) and both are members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA).
Remember the General Chiropractic Council’s Section 60 Order application to the Privy Council?
The reply I got from the GCC, when I asked what it was all about, wasn’t exactly forthcoming about the nature of the changes, despite it being somewhat wordy.
But we know now.
It looks like everything has gone smoothly in the move from Blogspot to WordPress – if you know differently, please let me know!
However, I reserve the right to continually tweak the theme and anything else I feel needs
Yet more Adventures in nonsense from Simon; this time about the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) trying to persuade Trading Standards that chiropractic is effective for some conditions, whilst not actually claiming that chiropractic is effective for some conditions.
David Colquhoun’s frustration — and indeed anger — is palpable. And understandably so.
He brilliantly covered Monday’s announcement by the Department of Health (DoH) of their consultation into the regulation of “acupuncture, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and other traditional medicine systems”.
This consultation is the DoH’s response to the infamous Pittilo Report, which saw the light of day just over a year ago.
