In accordance with the Bermuda Health Council Act 2004, per Section 5 [d]; the Bermuda Health Council published its Statutory Board Self-Assessment Report.

“The Self-Assessment Report reflects the period 1st September 2017 to 31st August 2018. The 2018 Statutory Boards Self-Assessment Report provides a summary of information on complaints, board composition, professional registration, and continuing education for regulated health professionals and Statutory Boards,” the Council said.

“It is noteworthy that The Council for Allied Health Professions has expanded to include five additional professions: acupuncturists, chiropractors, counsellors, massage therapists, & social workers [as referenced on page 4].

“These changes bring the Act more closely in line with other Statutory Bodies, and are based on international best practices.”

“The Health Council has a role to play in the protection of the public through its monitoring of health professional regulation. This process allows us to support and advocate for the highest standards in health care.

“The Health Council also supports the enforcement of registration requirements, and monitors complaints, disciplinary processes and outcomes.”

David Rogers, Project Manager, said: “Public protection is the ultimate purpose for health professional statutory boards. Monitoring these groups helps to ensure that wellness and quality care is within reach of anyone seeking services. Bermuda has some of the greatest practitioners in the world, and it is important that we measure so health professions can continuously improve system wide.”

“This reporting process allows the Council to see into the inner workings of each health profession. The clarity it brings is important to us, as we believe you can’t measure what you can’t see.”
