The CNHC Board joins the Professional Standards Authority in calling for a new model of integrated health and care
CNHC welcomes the Accredited Registers Report to Ministers published today by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
As the holder of an Accredited Register, the CNHC Board is pleased to see the work of CNHC registrants showcased in the Report and joins with Harry Cayton in calling for a new model of health and care for the 21st Century.
Harry Cayton, Chief Executive of the Professional Standards Authority said:
‘We all know we need to deliver new, innovative ways to improve people’s health. The NHS is re-examining the way it delivers services and is exploring new models of integrated care better-suited to today. That means looking beyond the traditional confines of our health and care system and the traditional health professions. The 63,000 practitioners on 17 Accredited Registers covering 25 occupations must be part of that, offering different approaches to care which commissioners can choose with the confidence that they are competent and safe.’
He continued: ’.....we no longer have to depend solely on doctors and nurses but can create broader multidisciplinary teams. We must invest in prevention and wellbeing to deliver healthcare for the 21st Century. The complementary therapists registered with CNHC are among the health practitioners who have a key role to play in this new model.”
CNHC’s Chair, John Lant commented:
‘We have over 5,000 practitioners on our Accredited Register from professions that are already used to support patients in areas such as cancer and palliative care and mental health services. The patient comments outlined in the report speak volumes about the role complementary therapies can play in enhancing patient wellbeing and we welcome wholeheartedly the Professional Standards Authority’s comments and report.”
