The British Government has started to relax the COVID-19 confinement rules and this means that face-to-face consultations can now take place once more with right protective measures in place. BANT is aware that slightly different guidance is being issued in different countries, including Scotland, Wales, and Guernsey, and strongly urges both, members of the public and Registered Nutritional Therapists, to follow their local Government guidance.
Please note that the Government continues to recommend working remotely from home where possible and therefore Registered Nutritional Therapists will continue to provide online consultations and only suggest a face-to-face consultation when there is no other possible alternative and it is possible to follow provided guidelines for the safety of the client and the practitioner.
Registered Nutritional Therapists are regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) that holds an Accredited Voluntary Register (AVR) for the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) and are required to follow both the Government and CNHC published guidance, later of which includes guidelines about COVID-19 risk factors, screening for COVID-19 symptoms and when not to proceed to a face-to-face appointment.
