GCC investigation

If you are under investigation by the GCC, our specialised chiropractic lawyers can help you through all stages of the legal process, from initial investigation right the way through to practise hearings.

We can offer legal assistance and advice on initial complaints and representation at full GCC Professional Conduct Committee or GCC Health Committee hearings, including helping with any appeals.

Fitness to practise

We understand how distressing a complaint against you and your professional services can be. If your fitness to practise or professional integrity is under scrutiny you can feel like there are limited avenues for help, but the expert chiropractic lawyers at Stephensons have many years’ experience in helping chiropractors with complaints against them.

Our specialist team of defence lawyers for chiropractors can also help those currently under investigation or facing disciplinary hearing by their employers. Stephensons can also offer legal advice and representation if chiropractors are facing a criminal investigation into their conduct whilst operating.

In addition we can also offer advice and assistance to chiropractors who wish to register with the GCC after receiving their chiropractic qualification in another country outside the EC.

If you are under investigation from the GCC, it’s vital that you seek specialist advice. In order to protect your interests and to avoid prejudicing your case, contact the experts at Stephensons as soon as possible.

 For a confidential, no-obligation discussion regarding your case, contact one of our specialist GCC and chiropractic lawyers on 0203 816 9274.

Alternatively please complete our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you as a matter of urgency.
