You can choose a BAcC member with confidence
When you decide to have acupuncture treatment, you’ll want to be sure you are going to be in safe hands. Here are just a few reasons why choosing a British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) member is a good idea.
British Acupuncture Council members are fully trained in acupuncture to degree level, meeting standards laid down by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Codes of professional behaviour
All members agree to abide by the British Acupuncture Council’s codes of professional conduct and safe practice, which set benchmark standards for the whole of the UK acupuncture profession.
Every member has to undertake at least 30 hours continuing professional development a year in order to remain on the BAcC register.
The British Acupuncture Council can give you clear and accurate information to help you choose an acupuncturist able to meet your needs.
Any complaint made against a member is handled fairly and robustly by the BAcC. In addition, the British Acupuncture Council will not admit any acupuncturist who has been struck off another accredited register.
The British Acupuncture Council is widely recognised and supported by other key health and care stakeholders in the UK.
The British Acupuncture Council has been rigorously assessed by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and awarded the PSA quality mark. All of our members are part of this government-backed initiative to protect the public.
Indeed, the PSA recommends that the public only see practitioners who belong to an accredited – or statutory – register: http://www.professionalstandards.org.uk/what-we-do/accredited-registers/see-the-benefits
