We are proud to be a registered member of the CNHC who’s key purpose is to act in the public interest and enable proper public accountability of the complementary therapists that it registers. CNHC acts in the public interest by:
- keeping a register of practitioners who meet national standards of practice in their work
- setting the standards that practitioners need to meet to get onto and then stay on the register
- requiring CNHC registered practitioners to keep to our strict Code of Conduct, Ethics and Performance
- investigating complaints about alleged breaches of the Code
- imposing disciplinary sanctions that mirror those of the statutory healthcare regulators
