The Government expects all providers to safely deliver the treatments they offer and adhere to hygiene standards, in line with health and safety legislation.
Concerns about the hygiene standards or suitability of premises used by mobile and home-based practitioners can be reported to the Health and Safety Executive, or any relevant professional body the practitioner is registered with.
