Adoption of Life science Industry Accreditation Register
NHS Trusts across the country are planning to introduce credential checking for company representatives visiting the Hospital site. The intention is to use the Life Science Industry (LSI) Accredited Credentialing Register1 which has been launched with the support of NHS England, NHS Improvement and the major life science industry associations.
The LSI Register will:
Establish, and periodically validate against, minimum acceptable standards for registrants and training provision
Maintain the required standards of conduct, education, training and health & safety criteria
Provide a single point for NHS staff and the public to verify an individual’s status against agreed criteria and eligibility to engage with the NHS
Support Trusts with regard to credentialing and management of conflicts of interest
Support the improvement of standards without restricting access to approved individuals.
PROOF OF REGISTRATION
To ensure the highest standards of governance, the Register has been independently accredited by the Professional Standards Authority which already accredits a number of other significant registers in the life-science sector. Hospitals will require all industry employees entering hospital premises to be listed on the LSI register. Proof of registration, by means of the valid LSI photo ID card, will be required on entry to non-public areas of the hospital.
