Membership of Trade Bodies and Standards
The British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) is the UK's largest healthcare association. It has about 500 member companies comprising both large and small businesses across the healthcare industry. The products these companies make and supply are very varied including daily living aids, wheelchairs and scooters, stairlifts and seating.
Members of the BHTA sign up to a code of practice designed to ensure the public can trust that members will give a good service, and a high standard of behaviour - the Code is overseen by the Trading Standards Institute (TSI). You can request a copy of the code of conduct from a member company or the BHTA. www.bhta.net
