Which? Report on Nutritional Therapy

The Nutritional Therapy Council has not seen the details of the Which? report into nutritional therapy and we were not involved in its inception or design. We have not been asked by Which? for our input in the assessment of practitioner performance.

We would hope to find that the report was prepared in an unbiased manner and that information collected was evaluated by a panel that included qualified and experienced nutritional therapists, who could assess the performance of the targeted practitioners against the National Occupational Standard, which was prepared by Skills for Health, the sector skills council for healthcare. As in other professions, assessment of practitioner performance should involve experts from that profession.

The Nutritional Therapy Council was established to raise standards of training and practice in Nutritional Therapy. We established voluntary regulation and registered over 600 practitioners before handing over registration to the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) in 2009. If there are issues of practitioner underperformance or concern, we would expect them to be pursued with the CNHC, the body responsible for practitioner regulation.

The Nutritional Therapy Council provides the accreditation process for training courses in nutritional therapy, to ensure that students are taught to the Core Curriculum to meet the National Occupational Standard. There are now a number of fully accredited degree, Masters degree and higher education diploma courses in Nutritional Therapy. We would therefore be interested to know how practitioners in the Which? report were selected, where they were trained, and if they were registered.

Furthermore, we welcome the opportunity to work with other organisations in the nutrition field to improve standards and regulation.

 

With the transfer of the register to the CNHC, the NTC has a new focus. It will now develop its role as the Professional Standards Council for Nutritional Therapy, developing education and training standards for the profession.

This will include: 

Accreditation of courses to the National Occupational Standards

Updating the Core Curriculum for training providers

Providing support and advice to training providers

The NTC has a number of other projects in development including registration for specialist practitioners and teachers in nutritional therapy, and a Return to Practice scheme. Professional Associations representing Nutritional Therapists working at the level of the National Occupational Standard are offered representation on the NTC Council.
