FOI, General Chiropractic Council

Dear Ms Haddou,

I am sorry that I have not replied before to your FOI request. We were looking to produce the information you requested for our small staff team at the GCC, but it has been pointed out that you were probably looking for information on those that the GCC regulates, hence your use of the wording "staff regulated by your organisation". However, chiropractors are not staff members of the GCC and hence we are hoping that you will be able to clarify that you were looking for information on those we regulate, i.e. chiropractors.

If you could provide this clarification as soon as possible, we will start to produce the information you have requested and get that to you as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

Rui Domingues
Finance Director

Dear Ms Haddou,

As we have not received clarification of the request you made, we have closed this FOI case.

If you do wish to reopen the case, I am afraid that you will need to submit a fresh request, which we will then process.

Kind regards,
