 ‘The more the skeptics try and undermine our accreditation and relationship with the PSA, the happier I am. We must be doing things right!’MarkTaylor

 

Mark Taylor, Chief Executive of the Society of Homeopaths makes this confident and bold statement in an article in the recent issue of 'The Homeopath' mailed out to all members and subscribers.

Reflecting on the benefits of accreditation of the Society’s register by the Professional Standards Agency(PSA), Taylor highlights the fact that the sceptics are unnerved that the Society and its members can now draw on the credibility and influence that comes with having an accredited register. They know, says Taylor, that we have ‘credibility with the public and patients but also with people and organisations we want to impress [such as] MPs, agencies, other registers, press and commentators.’ 

Taylor also pointed out that the influence of the PSA on the Society’s operations and policies is modest aside from providing understandable assurances that the systems and quality control we have on standards and conduct guarantee that ‘we only allow the best homeopaths to become RSHoms’.   

Patients are at the heart of what the PSA do – providing the public with confidence that RSHoms are practitioners of the highest quality and the PSA are increasingly carrying this message to other parts of the health sector, including the General Medical Council, NHS Choices and the Royal College of GPs to encourage them to think more about integrated health and refer patients only to members of accredited registers.

As Taylor says, ‘accreditation has gained credibility for RSHoms but it has also given us a seat at the table.  A position we intend to fully exploit to its full advantage on behalf of our members’.
