The PPQM is awarded to chiropractic clinics that demonstrate excellence in meeting patient expectations in a range of areas including accessibility, cleanliness and safety and patient communication. The decision to award the PPQM is made by a panel of patients and public who form the Royal College of Chiropractor’s Lay Partnership Group.
The award was presented to clinic principal, Matthew, at a ceremony in London on 29th January by Lay Partnership Group member Mr Paul Shorten.
