Q. How can I verify that someone is fully qualified and registered with the British Acupuncture Council?
A. To be absolutely sure, you would need to contact the office in London. The database is updated every week, but not everyone chooses to be on the 'practitioner search' section of the BAcC website, so it is possible that you might insert a specific name in the 'advanced search' section and find no results.
Printed materials go out of date, and it is possible that someone might have been a member when a leaflet or register was printed but have lapsed in the following months.
