Regulation in Chiropractic

Chiropractic in the UK is regulated by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). Without GCC registration, individuals cannot legally practice as chiropractors in the UK.

The McTimoney College of Chiropractic has been assessed by the GCC and the ECCE and its qualifications have been formally “recognised” as providing the necessary skills, knowledge, and experience for the safe and competent practice of chiropractic.
