See the Benefits



Whether you are a member of public looking for a health practitioner, an employer recruiting staff or a commissioner buying services, Accredited Registers can help you choose with confidence.

When you choose to see a health and care practitioner you want to know that you are in safe hands. Using someone on an Accredited Register gives you peace of mind, knowing that:

  • Practitioners on an Accredited Register are part of a government-backed scheme to protect the public

  • The organisation holding an Accredited Register has been rigorously assessed by us and awarded our quality mark

  • We make sure you are given clear and accurate information to help you choose a practitioner to meet your needs

  • We make sure Accredited Registers handle complaints fairly and robustly

  • If a practitioner is struck off an Accredited Register they are not allowed to join another one in the same occupation (or another in a different occupation if removed for misconduct), so you and others can avoid poor practice

  • Accredited Registers are recognised and supported by key stakeholders in the UK.

Practitioners who are committed to high standards choose to join an Accredited Register. Responsible employers and commissioners choose practitioners on Accredited Registers.

We recommend the public only see practitioners on an Accredited Register (or a Statutory Register). Look out for our quality mark which is displayed by practitioners on Accredited Registers.
