WELCOME TO OUR MAY NEWS UPDATE
I hope you are all safe and well. The recent months have been extremely difficult for everyone, and I appreciate the impact it has had on our Registrants. For those of you who have been able to continue to practise, if you have not delivered therapies remotely before, you have had to rise to the challenge of rapidly adapting to new ways of working with your clients. We would value hearing from you about your experiences of doing this – more details of how you can share this with us can be found below.
The assurance that you are able to give to the public by being included on an Accredited Register is now more vital than ever before, and we will be working hard to get this message across. In this newsletter we have also included our Advice for Registrants on working remotely and further guidance on complying with advertising codes which I hope you will find helpful.
For those of you who have been unable to continue practising, we would urge you to check information we have put together to support you during this time, if you haven’t already done so. It can all be found here.
UK and devolved governments’ strategies to ease restrictions in a staged way have now been published (more information can be found below). I appreciate how frustrating the uncertainty must be for you and how keen you are to go back to making such an important contribution to supporting the public’s health and wellbeing. CNHC exists to protect the public and we can only advise a return to practising face to face in accordance with the requirements of governments across the UK and public health guidance on when and how it is safe to do so. At present there is no definite date for this. However, we are working on guidance for a safe return to practice that we will share with our Registrants shortly – so you can at least start to plan for this.
