College of Chiropractors granted Royal Charter
At a meeting of the Privy Council on Wednesday, the Queen approved the grant of
a Royal Charter to the College of Chiropractors, the first Royal Charter to be
granted to a complementary medicine organisation in the UK.

The College is an academic, professional membership body, established along the
lines of the Medical Royal Colleges, which over the past 13 years has sought to
ensure quality, safety and excellence are at the forefront of chiropractic
practice in the public interest.

Chiropractic is regulated by statute and although chiropractors provide their
services largely within the private sector, NHS funding for chiropractic
treatment is now emerging region by region under the Department of Health’s new
commissioning arrangements. Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis and
treatment of problems affecting the joints, muscles and nerves and are probably
best known for treating low back pain, a condition which costs the equivalent
of between 1% and 2% of the UK GDP and has a significant impact on people’s

Rarely granted, a Royal Charter signals permanence and stability and, in the
College of Chiropractors’ case, a clear indication to others of the leadership
value and innovative approach the College brings to the development of the
chiropractic profession. The Royal Charter essentially formalises the College’s
position as a unique, apolitical, consultative body, recognising its role in
promoting high practice standards and certifying quality and thus securing
public confidence.

Tim Jay, President of the College, said, “The College of Chiropractors’ Royal
Charter emphasises to the public and other health bodies that chiropractic is a
healthcare profession with parity in the field of musculoskeletal health,
providing a viable and recognised option for patients.”
