A CHIROPRACTIC clinic in Chester has been awarded a national award of excellence.

Harding Chiropractic Clinic in Parkgate Road received the Patient Partnership Quality Mark (PPQM) by The Royal College of Chiropractors.

The PPQM is awarded to chiropractic clinics that demonstrate excellence in meeting patient expectations in 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 patients committee.

Clinic Principal Helen Harding said: “The award of the Patient Partnership Quality Mark recognises this clinic’s commitment to meeting the expectations our patients have when they visit us for advice and treatment.

"The aim of our clinic team is to continually improve our levels of service and the award encourages us that we are achieving this.”
