For she’s a jolly good fellow! … & so say the Royal College of Chiropractors

The Maristow Chiropractic Clinic is delighted to announce that Dr. Kay Pearce, clinic director, has been awarded a Fellowship of the Royal College of Chiropractors.

Fellows are elected to the highest level of membership available by a panel in recognition of their significant contribution to chiropractic. This honour rewards a dedication to improving the profession with a clear focus on self-improvement aimed at providing the very best chiropractic care.

In February 2013 Her Majesty the Queen gave permission for the College to change its name to The Royal College of Chiropractors. The Royal title positions the College in a similar role to that of the Medical Royal Colleges in terms of promoting high practice standards, certifying quality and thus securing public confidence.

On hearing of her Fellowship, Dr. Pearce said, “I was delighted when I received the letter! This honour came totally out of the blue, but is a real reward for the extra hours I’ve been putting in to study for my Ultrasound exams later this year. I can now add FCC to the other letters after my name… I might need to order some bigger business cards!”

The Royal College of Chiropractors is a professional membership body, and registered charity, promoting professional excellence, quality and safety in chiropractic with 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.
