Legal Notice

Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966

It is illegal for any person to treat an animal unless they are a veterinary surgeon or a “paraprofessional” covered by the Veterinary Sugeons (Exemptions) Order 1962.

Claire Warman is classed as a paraprofessional by the Veterinary Surgery (Exemptions) Order 1962 and is allowed to practice with the prior consent of the animal’s veterinary surgeon. Therefore Claire always seeks veterinary referral or verifies that veterinary permission has been given before treatment.

Chiropractors Act 1994

Claire Warman is a graduate of McTimoney College (University of Wales) and is fully qualified and insured to practice McTimoney Animal Manipulation.

Claire Warman is not qualified to practice on humans and is therefore not a chiropractor and is not registered with the General Chiropractic Council. In compliance with section 32 of the Chiropractors Act 1994, Claire Warman does not describe herself as a chiropractor, chiropractic practitioner, chiropractitioner, chiropractic physician, or any other kind of chiropractor. Animal practitioners are not able to join the GCC as it is only concerned with human treatment. The use of the word McTimoney to describe the animal treatment DOES NOT imply that Claire Warman is a chiropractor.
