INTRODUCTION TO THE LIFE SCIENCE INDUSTRY NATIONAL CREDENTIALING REGISTER, POWERED BY MIA
Why is this Register needed?
Staff from the Life Science industry engage with NHS staff and patients on a daily basis. It is important that these interactions take place within a professional, ethical and safe framework.
We know that Trusts are looking to confirm the identity, credentials and training status of individuals who visit their sites.
Currently the responsibility for this lies with each individual Trust and they have sought a variety of means to address this challenge. This has led to variable practices in the standards and processes used within the NHS to check the status of industry staff on site – there has been a lack of consistency.
