Thanks for this, was more interesting that I expected! I am going to a meeting with the CThA National Chair, Kush Kumar in a week or 2 so I will raise this and see exactly what the status will be in Scotland and what that means for therapists...as many of us arent employed by an agency I do wonder how they would implement and monitor such standards?

Rona You can also ask about communication with therapy group members and members, why the members are unaware of what is going on about regulation. I havereceived a very interesting email from some one asking me to put my name to a petition for No 10

Hi Angela - if you mean which page is the regulation info on - if you go to the CThA home page, there's a light green box on the right, with a link to a regulation info page on this site. For the info on occupational standards, you need to email the address above, and you'll be sent the documents. Having explored the issue a bit more, I think these standards will be for CNHC, but I could be wrong about that. So far CNHC only cover massage and nutrition, but by the look of the documents, a few more things are set to be included. I also received the email about the petition, and found myself wondering whether it was set up by someone who would rather comp. therapies weren't regulated at all, and is, in fact, against them. I replied to the email asking about the background of the instigator, but have had no reply as yet. Hope that answers your question, Roushan
