One of the main focuses for the FHT’s Accredited Register is to offer a platform for the public, and therapists, to have names they can trust. Your own well-being is one of the most important things you have, so why risk it?
The Accredited Register programme was launched in 2012 to accredit voluntary registers of Health and Social Care occupations that are not statutorily regulated, such as complementary therapy.
Why is that important for the public?
The FHT Accredited Register ensures that therapists meet the high standards set in the areas of education and training, ethical and professional conduct, governance, skill, competency and public safety.
This means that if the public choose a therapist that is listed on the FHT Accredited Register, they will have the additional assurance that they are receiving the best possible care.
Professional Standards Authority
The Professional Standards Authority is accountable to Parliament, and accreditation by this independent body demonstrates that a voluntary register is managed effectively and adheres to good practice. It enhances public protection and enables service users, employers, healthcare commissioners and the public, to choose a practitioner who is competent and behaves in an ethical and compassionate manner. Everyone who is listed on the FHT’s Accredited register has met the Professional Standards Authority requirements.
When choosing an FHT Accredited therapist, you can rest assured that your therapist:
- Has a qualification that meets the national minimum standards
- Is insured to practice those therapies
- Abides by the FHT Code of Conduct and Professional Practice.
