Through a system of assessment you have successfully demonstrated basic clinical competence and have gained sufficient knowledge, skill and experience to practise safely and independently.
Your qualification is an award that you hold for the rest of your life and forms the basis for registration, whereas you may not necessarily maintain your status as a registered practitioner throughout your professional life.
Can sometimes be misunderstood to mean a further process of assessment that the newly qualified practitioner needs to undergo in order to become a fully independent and competent homeopath. This is not the case. The purpose of registration is to provide a framework within which practitioners can commit themselves to a life-long journey of best clinical practice and optimum patient care and express their affiliation to the homeopathic profession, as represented by The Society of Homeopaths. It involves an agreement between the homeopath and the registering body to deliver a certain level of quality and service to patients.
Your registration remains valid while:
- you maintain your membership fees (including insurance)
- you practise in the UK
- you continue to work within the terms of the registration agreement
