Want to play a key role in setting high standards in chiropractic, patient-centred care? Read on
The General Chiropractic Council is looking for new members to join our fitness to practise regulatory committees:
- Five registrant committee members
- Twelve lay committee members, four of whom will also chair hearings of the Committee.
The Professional Conduct Committee considers complaints of personal or professional misconduct or incompetence. Where the Professional Conduct Committee concludes that a chiropractor is guilty of unacceptable professional conduct it may admonish the chiropractor, impose a 'Conditions of Practice' order, suspend the chiropractor's registration or order the Registrar to remove the chiropractor from the Register.
The Health Committee considers complaints against chiropractors relating to their mental or physical health. Where the Health Committee upholds a complaint against a chiropractor it may impose a 'Conditions of Practice' order or suspend the chiropractor's registration. Regulatory committee members can sit on both committees.
We are keen to encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and will consider suitably qualified applicants who do not already sit on other regulator’s panels/committees.
Lay/Registrant Committee Member: £300 daily attendance fee
Chair Committee Member: £350 daily attendance fee
Applicants will be required to commit to sit for up to 20 days per year although it may be less. Travel and subsistence expenses are also refundable in line with our expenses policy.
Appointments will commence from 1 June 2021 (initially for three or four years).
For further information see the website.
The closing date is Thursday 12 November 2020 at 12:00 noon.
