The NACC Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners. Membership includes entry on both
the Website and in the published directory. With an opportunity to provide an additional 200 word detailed
background of their practice.

and provide them with an opportunity to confirm their commitment to be recognised as a legitimate part
of their local Primary Careteam.
If you are a qualified practitionerand belong to one of the recognised professional organisations
and would like to apply for membership of The NACC Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners, an application pack can be sent out to you firstname.lastname@example.org
Clearly, the GPis the obvious point of referral for patients who wish to access an appropriately trained
and motivated practitioner. Until now, the will to integrate Complementary and Alternative Medicine
into mainstream healthcare has not been matched by the wherewithal to do so. There has been no single
source from which GPscould access the information needed to offer patients the advice and
recommendation they seek.
Research shows that, there is a growing enthusiasm among the general public for all forms of
Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The NACC Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners
provides a means of connecting patients requiring therapy with practitionerswho wish to work,
directly or indirectly, with the NHS, via their GP.
The NACC Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitionersenables GPs
, via their computer, to access details of appropriate local practitioners
quickly and easily during the consultation. The directory provides the GPwith detailed information
concerning the fees, qualificationsand treatmentsoffered by individual practitioners.
The patient will have the reassurance of a GPreferral, and of knowing that any practitioner
in the directory will be one who has registered their desire to work with the NHS.
