Equally important in our compliance to this Ethics Statement and Code of Conduct is that we will:
- Report any practitioner whether colleague, employee, volunteer or competitor who is found to be practicing
- deceitfully or with willful intent to mislead or misdiagnose
- unethically in a manner that is racist, sexist or discriminating on other basis of creed or gender or lifestyle choice such as veganism
- Report any device that is not marked with CE or UKCA for safety conformity that is being used commercially
- Report any study that is being conducted without regards to or not in accordance with standards governing clinical trials in humans
It is the unfortunate truth that we have seen many vulnerable populations targeted – especially over social media – with promises of “taking part in a study” which is not properly registered and no responsibility taken for the health and wellbeing of the subjects “studied” through interventions drawing blood or taking other samples of human tissue or biological matter. Any deviation in health standards could lead to very permanent and significant consequences, for example, blood draws taken with an unclean needle could cause an infection to reach the heart. Therefore all studies, credentials and methods must be scrutinised for adherence.
Please see our Vulnerable Person’s Statement for further information.
