ICrA is now working with CNHC

CNHC LogoThe Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners that was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC's register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This means CNHC has met the Professional Standards Authority's demanding standards. All CNHC registered practitioners are entitled to use CNHC's quality mark which demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and high standards. The public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners can choose with confidence, by looking for the CNHC quality mark.

CNHC Registration

CNHC has agreed that ICrA may verify applications for CNHC registration and we encourage members to register in order to gain the CNHC quality mark. The criteria for entry to the register can be downloaded from CNHC web site. Members wishing to register should download a Request to Register Form, to be completed and returned to ICrA by post or email. We will then request further details from you in order to check your eligibility for registration.
