(PRESS RELEASE FROM THE COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTORS FOLLOWING THE PATIENT PARTNERSHIP QUALITY MARK AWARDS)

Dr Marc Martineau of the Exmouth Chiropractic Clinic and Family Chiropractic clinic, Exeter was awarded the ‘Patient Partnership Quality Mark’ (PPQM) last week by The College of Chiropractors.

The PPQM award was launched in 2006 by the College of Chiropractors to recognise excellence in meeting the expectations patients have about their chiropractic care.

Dr Martineau said:

“Chiropractors provide safe and effective treatment, and we are proud to say that the award of the Patient Partnership Quality Mark recognises this clinic’s commitment to meeting and exceeding patients’ expectations of their treatment environment and care. We constantly strive to improve our level of service and always welcome feedback from patients.”
