So who are the Professional Standards Authority?
They are the authority for Health and Social Care they oversee statutory bodies (like General Medical Council, General Dental Council & more) they regulate health and social care professionals set standards, scrutinise & audit in the UK & most importantly they report to parliament.
What do the Professional Standards Authority do?
- 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, 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.
