As you may be aware there is a new physical intervention accreditation coming into effect in April 2020, which we are not going to be pursuing and I mentioned in one of my previous videos that we could see no major benefit in pursuing the accreditation.
This prompted a few people to come back to me to say that there was a benefit, and that benefit is that if anyone wishes to deliver, or continue to deliver physical intervention training to an NHS trust in England, then they need to have the accreditation because NHS England have made it a condition of contract.
So my question is, ‘Is the New PI Accreditation Worth It or Are We Putting Profits Before Safety?’

Oh, and we will still be running our BTEC Level 3 Restraint Instructor Award Course which is not only a properly accredited BTEC Level 3 Award issued by one of the world’s largest Awarding organisations, but also one that has been medically reviewed, risk assessed and regularly checked for legal accuracy and you can find out more here if you are interested – https://www.nfps.info/physical-intervention-trainer-course/
