As registered members of the British Acupuncture Council, acupuncturists Lorna Withers and Steve Coster are allowed to display the Accredited Voluntary Register quality mark, a sign that they meet the Professional Standards Authority’s high standards.
Harry Cayton, Chief Executive of the Professional Standards Authority said, “We are very pleased to accredit BAcC’s register of acupuncturists. Bringing their members into a broad framework of assurance is good for patient, service users and the public and is the best way to promote quality. The scheme offers enhanced consumer protection to anyone looking for health and social care services, and gives BAcC registered acupuncturists the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment.”
Accreditation means that the BAcC’s register meets the Professional Standards Authority’s high standards in governance, standard-setting, education and training, management, complaints and information.
