There were two conditions resulting from the HGI's most recent accreditation:

The HGI should:

a) Review and update its complaints procedures and provide an updated version to the Accreditation team within six months. The HGI’s review should ensure that its processes comply with good practice and the law and should include consideration of EDI issues, the Human Rights Act and those points raised within this report and the external report, previously commissioned by the HGI.

b) Provide a plan to the Accreditation team about its implementation of the new process which should include the development of guidance documents such as guidance for making decisions at the investigation stage, guidance for holding hearings and guidance for registrants.

Remember to always use our check a practitioner tool to make sure that practitioners are regulated or registered.

We use this when we are reviewing applications for accreditation and also as part of our annual reviews when registers are renewing their accreditation. You can find out more here.
