The launch of the first NHS Natural Health School
Last month the NHS Natural Health School opened its doors at the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre in Harrogate. The school is the first of its kind and was created in response to complementary therapy services frequently being unavailable to cancer patients, despite the positive physical and emotional benefits.
The School provides complementary therapy diplomas and CPD courses that will uniquely include practical placements and clinical supervision within the NHS. In addition to a range of regulated ITEC Level 3 courses, a unique ‘NHS Certificate in Complementary Therapies’ has been created for those already qualified at Level 3. This course provides an opportunity for those who wish to develop and expand their skills with cancer patients to the standards required by NHS organisations.

CNHC raising awareness of the Accredited Register scheme
June was a particularly busy month for CNHC. On Tuesday 19 June CNHC exhibited at ‘Reimagining General Practice’ at The King’s Fund, attended mainly by GPs. CNHC also exhibited at Health + Care at Excel London on Wednesday 27 June and Thursday 28 June, which was attended by GPs, Clinical Commissioning Group leads, owners of Residential Care Homes and community nurses.
At both events, we distributed leaflets, raised awareness of CNHC and the Accredited Register scheme, emphasised GMC guidance on referrals to practitioners on Accredited Registers and distribute copies of the Royal Society for Public Health/Professional Standards Authority ‘Untapped Resources’ report.
Information Commissioners Office (ICO) calls for volunteers
On Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 September, the ICO will be undertaking website user testing in London. You may have visited the ICO website quite frequently before GDPR, so this is your chance to feedback on using their website.
