The Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

CNHC_LogoThe Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists.

CNHC’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This means CNHC has met the Professional Standards Authority’s demanding standards.

All CNHC–registered practitioners are entitled to use the CNHC’s quality mark which demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and high standards. By looking for the CNHC quality mark, the public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners can choose with confidence.

General Medical Council (GMC) guidance confirms that doctors are able to refer patients to practitioners on Accredited Registers.
