The BAcC works towards ensuring that members obtain the best outcomes for patients and that patient experience is improved. All feedback is very important in helping the BAcC improve and develop services and we value it highly. Our strategy is to involve patients of acupuncture in a variety of ways, with a view that there is no 'one size fits all' approach.
