    [post_content] => The Professional Standards Authority (PSA) has reaccredited the Society of Homeopaths’ register for the fifth consecutive year subject to a four-part Condition.

The PSA is an independent body, accountable to the UK Parliament. It protects the public by overseeing the regulation and registration of social and healthcare professionals. The Society of Homeopaths is the only dedicated homeopathy register to be accredited.

Emily Buttrum Chief Executive of the Society said, "Accreditation by the PSA ensures that patients can choose to see a homeopath belonging to a register that upholds robust standards. We therefore question the logic of recent calls for the Society not to be reaccredited, as accredited professional bodies offer greater protection for the public, ensuring consistent standards of care. The Society is pleased that the report and outcome issued by the PSA recognise the progressive plans we have put in place to uphold our high professional standards and those required by the accredited registers scheme.”

Conditions are issued when an Accredited Register does not meet one or more of the Standards for Accredited Registers and is required to complete a specific action within a specified timeframe in order to comply.

Linda Wicks Chair of the Society of Homeopaths Board of Directors said. "The Society of Homeopaths has demonstrated a commitment to the development of high standards of practice for over 40 years.  We are pleased that the Professional Standards Authority has once again acknowledged this work and its ongoing implementation.  We feel that fulfilling the condition will firm up what we have already communicated to members and to the public. This outcome affords well deserved credit to our members and staff, and additional confidence for the public who value choice in healthcare."

The PSA accredits 24 other registers that meet the Standards for Accredited Registers. It also oversees the ten statutory registers such as the General Medical Council, the General Osteopathic Council and the General Dental Council.

Cristal Sumner, Chief Executive of the British Homeopathic Association, said, “As a patient-focused organisation we believe that all healthcare professionals should be bound by rigorous codes of practice, ethics and conduct. The Society of Homeopaths promotes the highest professional standards amongst its members and its renewed accreditation by the PSA provides patients with an extra assurance of safety and quality of care”.
