Benefits for employers and commissioners



When you’re employing staff, or commissioning or procuring services, you need to know you’re making the right choice. Whether you’re looking for staff to run a smoking cessation service, sport rehabilitators to care for your gym clients or offering reflexology as a staff benefit, the Authority’s Accredited Registers directory can help you purchase services with confidence.

By using our Find a Register service you’ll gain the following benefits:

  • Clear and current information to help you make the right choice
  • Independent assurance that is recognised by NHS Employers, other regulators such as the Care Quality Commission and Any Qualified Providers scheme
  • Practitioners you can trust with your clients – because organisations holding registers that have achieved the Authority’s Quality Mark are part of a government-backed initiative to protect the public and promote their health and wellbeing. You’ll be choosing from a range of practitioners whose organisations hold them to high standards
  • Peace of mind – because organisations receiving our quality mark cannot do so without having a robust, transparent and fair complaints procedure in place, to ensure the right action is taken if things go wrong.
