how do I get started?

Increasingly patients want access to complementary therapies and they are being shown to be effective, non-harmful, supportive and helpful in meeting other public sector targets such as supporting people back to work, improving childhood behaviour and reducing the costs of drug prescribing and referrals to secondary care.

When commissioning complementary therapies you will need to consider the following:

  • Practitioner recruitment
  • Practitioner induction process
  • Appointment booking system
  • Referral process
  • Integration with remainder of practice
  • Who is delivering the service?
  • Payment – how are practitioners paid?  What about supplies, rooms, overheads and so on?
  • Audit and clinical governance
  • Management of patient demand
  • Quality assurance
  • Legalities and insurance

Get Well UK is able to provide any range of these services for you, or to work as consultants supporting you and your staff to have the capacity to do this work in house.
