Our work with accredited registers

About Accredited Registers

Not everyone working in health and social care is regulated by law which is why it is important to choose practitioners from registers we have accredited. To be accredited and display our Quality Mark (our logo), registers must meet our Standards for Accredited Registers

By using practitioners who are on an Accredited Register, you can have confidence when choosing services from someone who is not regulated by law.

You can read more about how we will deliver the Accredited Registers programme, and how our priorities for the year link to the work of the wider organisation, in our 2022/23 business plan. If you would like to access this in a different format or would like a copy in Welsh, please get in touch by emailing

For service users and the public

If you're accessing healthcare services, it's good to be fully informed about who is treating you. Not all healthcare practitioners are regulated by law which means it's not always easy to find out more about them. 

When you choose a practitioner on an Accredited Register, you can access more information about them on their register.
