Patient Partnership Quality Mark (PPQM)

Lara Cawthra of the Hands on Health – Family Chiropractic Clinic in Camberley was awarded the ‘Patient Partnership Quality Mark’ (PPQM) on January 19th by The College of Chiropractors. Lara, pictured, accepted her award at The Royal Society in London from Hew Helps, Chair of the College’s Lay Partnership Group.

The PPQM award was launched in 2006 by the College of Chiropractors to recognise excellence in meeting the expectations patients have about their chiropractic care.

Lara said:

“Chiropractors provide safe and effective treatment, and we are proud to say that the award of the Patient Partnership Quality Mark recognises this clinic’s commitment to meeting patients’ expectations of their treatment environment and care. Our aim is to continually improve our levels of service and we always welcome feedback from patients to help us achieve this.”

About the College of Chiropractors

The College of Chiropractors is an academic membership organisation with over 2200 members and the following objectives:

  • to promote the art, science and practice of chiropractic;
  • to improve and maintain standards in the practice of chiropractic for the benefit of the public;
  • to promote awareness and understanding of chiropractic amongst medical practitioners and other healthcare professionals and the public;
  • to educate and train practitioners in the art, science and practice of chiropractic;
  • to advance the study of and research in chiropractic.

Members and Fellows of the College have always embraced postgraduate training and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in the public interest, pre-empting any statutory requirement. Since its incorporation in 1999, the College has worked with an eminent Advisory Board which supports the College in its aim to achieve a Royal Charter to signal the importance of chiropractic in complementing the mainstream healthcare professions, and to provide impetus to build an integrated chiropractic service around patients.

The College actively fosters patient and public involvement through its Lay Partnership Group and via patient representation on its governing Council.

Chiropractic regulation

Chiropractic is regulated by Act of Parliament in the United Kingdom. The Chiropractors Act 1994 gives regulatory powers to the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). The GCC’s register of chiropractors opened in June 1999 and approximately 2200 chiropractors are currently registered. It is illegal for anyone in the UK who is not registered with the GCC to describe themselves as a chiropractor.

Chiropractic care
Chiropractic is a profession, not a treatment. Chiropractors provide a package of care after taking a detailed case history and performing a thorough examination, which considers all aspects of the presenting complaint. This package of care may include physical treatments drawn from all types of manual therapy as well as spinal manipulation, exercise, muscular therapies and a range of advice on activity, lifestyle and prevention. The most compelling evidence for chiropractic care relates to low back pain, but chiropractors help people manage a range of other conditions. This does not necessarily mean that joint manipulation is used, but that the package of care given by the chiropractor provides relief.
