British Chiropractors Seek Funds to Establish Licensing

By Editorial Staff
Graham Heale, president of the British Chiropractic Assoc. from 1990-93, is running a marathon to raise money for the Chiropractic Foundation Fund for the establishment of a Chiropractic Register.

A report recommending the statutory regulation of chiropractors was set in motion in the summer of 1994 (received "royal assent," in British parlance). A Chiropractic Bill was introduced into the House of Commons and the House of Lords in November 1994. The act does not define chiropractic or scope of practice, but enables legislation to create a General Chiropractic Council to oversee the registration (licensing) and the promotion and development of the profession. The act provides the chiropractic profession to govern itself.

A Chiropractic Foundation Fund has been established to raise the 1.5 million pounds to establish a register, the first step towards chiropractic becoming available to the British public.

Dr. Heale, who specializes in treatment of sports injuries, is the sports injury adviser for the International Sport Karate Assoc. While Dr. Heale has never run a marathon, he is confident of completing the event.
