“It’s a great honour and a wonderful opportunity to be appointed as a Fellow of NICE. I am dedicated to promoting the highest standards of education and professionalism within the Chiropractic profession and in musculoskeletal practice generally. I look forward to championing the valuable work of NICE and the role that chiropractic can play in contributing to the development of new ways of working that make full use of the evidence-based skills and competencies of all practitioners that form part of the primary care workforce.”
