The LSI National Credentialing Register

The LSI National Credentialing Register is the culmination of extensive work between the major healthcare trade associations (ABHI; ABPI; AXREM; BAREMA; BDIA; BHTA; BIVDA; MEDILINK UK), NHS England and the Academy for Healthcare Science. Now, working with Medical Industry Ltd, this provides firstly, a not-for-profit registration system that has patient and public safety at its heart and secondly, a potential solution to the issue of multiple providers of credentialing systems which creates confusion and duplication and is costly to the healthcare industry and ultimately, as a consequence, the NHS.

The Life Science Industry National Credentialing Register is the first of its kind and sets national standards for healthcare professionals working in the life sciences industry providing reassurance to the NHS.

Under the Accredited Registers programme, registrants will be able to display the Accredited Register quality mark, a sign that they belong to a register which meets the Professional Standards Authority’s robust standards.

Accreditation means that the Academy for Healthcare Science’s register meets the Professional Standards Authority’s high standards in areas including governance, standard-setting, education and training, management of the register, complaints handling and risk management.  The Academy for Healthcare Science is responsible for assessing the merits of individuals on the register.

The Life Science Industry, in collaboration with the NHS and the Academy for Healthcare Science, have joined forces to develop a high-quality, accredited credentialing register for Life Sciences staff who interact routinely and directly with NHS front-line staff and/ or patients.
