“‘Both the Government and the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) recommend that when a patient or service user chooses to visit a health or care practitioner who is unregulated, only those on an accredited register are consulted.’ Therefore, under the General Medical Council’s guidance to doctors, they can refer patients to practitioners on the CNHC accredited register.”
