Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Supporting our members during the COVID-19 pandemic

As the professional association for the majority of chiropractors in the UK, the BCA is working hard to support and represent our members through the challenges of COVID-19. This page details support for members, public information and FAQs can be found on our dedicated page here.

The British Chiropractic Association has at its core the values which have been its ethos for 95 years.  These include the placing of patient care and safety above all other considerations. Our chiropractors also have a duty of care to their staff and associates and to the wider community, most particularly in this period of national crisis.

Current Situation

Chiropractors are able to remain open and practise in accordance with Government guidelines. As restrictions lift across all four UK nations, we have not changed our advice on PPE, which is set out in the Coronavirus Information Hub.

Member support

Safety

We have worked to help members and inform the public during the pandemic and members are benefitting from our diligence with reduced insurance premiums for 2021. Read more about how we did this.

Information and research

We have kept the public informed through our own communication channels and extensive PR work. Our latest research demonstrates the health issues that may impact MSK issues in the near future: “New BCA research shows that 57% of Brits are moving less since lockdown began”
