The credentialing registers allow suppliers to the NHS to apply for an ID card which demonstrates that they are qualified to be present in hospital environments.
The LSI National Credentialing Register was developed with the objective of enhancing patient and staff safety.
It provides a route to protect the public and assure the NHS that company representatives admitted to sensitive areas are properly trained and are fully aware of their responsibilities.
This guarantees that the NHS and private sectors fulfil their duty of care to protect patients and ensure safe clinical outcomes.

It meets legal requirements on employment law and data protection as well as government and NHS policy on working with industry.
The Register comprises three tiers:
All HC Skills courses address the relevant tiers and they cover critical areas of training as well as addressing issues, policies and legislation including:
It is important that interactions by Life Science workers with hospital employees take place within a professional, ethical and safe framework.
Up until now, the responsibility for this lay with individual hospitals. This has led to variable practices in the standards and processes used within the NHS to check the status of industry staff on site.
That lack of consistency is being highlighted by this new register.back
