UKBHC Register Accredited by Professional Standards Authority

The UK Board of Healthcare Chaplaincy’s (UKBHC) register has today been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) under its Accredited Registers programme.
Accreditation means that the UKBHC has met the PSA’s demanding standards in the areas of governance, setting standards, education and training, managing the register, providing information and complaints handling.

NHS and other healthcare providers that employ or commission healthcare chaplains can be reassured that those chaplains registered with the UKBHC belong to a register vetted and approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, an independent statutory body, accountable to Parliament.

Patients, service users and other members of the public cared for by those healthcare chaplains in those same organisations can also be similarly reassured.
