BANT NOTICE TO MEMBERS ABOUT AFN

Update on BANT position

As you are aware in 2018 BANT defended the profession and you, our members, against action taken by AfN.

Since then, BANT has been working to further protect the profession and its practitioners by undertaking initiatives, including trade-mark applications. In response to this AfN has initiated a further court action against BANT. BANT is confident in its position having had confirmation from the Department of Health that there is no legal or statutory impediment to any new register of nutritionists being established.

While legal matters are on-going, we are unable to comment further. We will give members further updates when our lawyers allow.

In the January/February edition of the eNews, I discussed the “Integrated Healthcare: Putting the Pieces Together” report, recently published by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare. The report highlights the need to use patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs for short) as a source of evidence in those healthcare modalities where funding for randomised controlled trials is not forthcoming. That includes Nutritional Therapy.
