    • 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.
