Amesbury-based chiropractor Philippa Oakley has been named Chiropractor of the Year, the most prestigious award presented by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA).
This award is presented to one chiropractor each year in recognition of their outstanding achievements in the chiropractic profession.
Of the award, Philippa said: “This award comes following an exciting year for me, after relocating my clinic to Amesbury at the beginning of the year.
“I am thrilled to have been recognised as chiropractor of the year for my contribution to the promotion and understanding of healthcare inequalities and the impact these can have on people’s health and wellbeing, which has seen me support healthcare organisations from around the world to improve their services in this area.”
Catherine Quinn, president of the British Chiropractic Association said: “Philippa has been chosen as a worthy recipient of the award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the promotion and understanding of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and for inspiring all BCA members to learn and develop their skills in this area.”
Philippa graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2012 with a Master of Chiropractic degree, and her commitment to clinical excellence has been recognised through the awarding of several prestigious accolades. She began her career working with NHS patients, before establishing her own clinic, Acorn Health, in 2014.
Acorn Health has received awards from the Royal College of Chiropractors in recognition of their commitment to patient care and clinical excellence.
In addition to her role as a Chiropractor, Philippa is also a qualified coach and mentor with the NHS Leadership Academy, supporting individuals in meeting their professional and personal goals, and is a professional member of the Royal College of Chiropractors Pain Faculty.
