The Australian Financial Reviews has revealed the final nail in the coffin for the Chiro schools, with the closure of four.
The ABC’s The Drum has been following the Chik-Fil-A closure saga for more than a year.
The story started with the ABC in July 2016 reporting on the closure by the Australian Chiropractic Schools Association (ACSA) of four chiropractors, including a family doctor.ACSA chief executive Tony Hall said the four chiropractor family doctors were due to be given leave and that the group was in talks with the Australian Government to help it with its funding arrangements.
But when the ABC’s own reporter, Jason Leung, asked if the group had been given any financial help, Hall said that was not true.
“We have no financial support at this point in time,” Hall said.
“It is the ACSA’s position that we are going to get the full support of the Government.”
The ABC has contacted the Department of Health for comment on this story.
