Registrant Survey 2020

In October 2020, we commissioned a national survey to explore the views of registrants across a range of different areas including qualifications, job satisfaction, clinical practice and the future of the profession. In total, 968 registrants completed the survey.

A series of in-depth interviews was also undertaken following the survey to understand registrants’ perceptions, experiences, and opinions in greater detail.

The research is part of the GCC’s commitment to using evidence and insight to support registrants in their day-to-day work delivering high quality patient care as well as guiding our work as a regulator.

Public perceptions research 
 
In October 2020 we commissioned a national survey of over 1,000 members of the UK public to explore public perceptions and awareness of chiropractic services. The experiences of 243 patients who have visited a chiropractor for treatment were also surveyed.  
 
The findings provide many valuable and useful insights that will support registrants in their day-to-day work delivering high quality patient care and help guide our work as a regulator.
