Patients are at the centre of everything that we do. This is why we work closely with our Patient Community panel to regularly gather their views and perspectives on a wide range of topics. You can read more about how the Patient Community is informing our work in the research reports here.

Patient Experience and satisfaction during chiropractic care
The report is the first part of a two-stage GCC research project to better understand chiropractic patient experience and satisfaction nationally and internationally. Co-authors, Professor Dave Newell and Dr Michelle Holmes initially identified over 3,000 documents, refining the search to 43 research articles that fulfilled inclusion and exclusion criteria as based on a preregistered review protocol (Prospero ID: CRD42020203251).

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.
