About us

We are the largest body of traditional western herbal practitioners in the UK. We liaise with the Department of Health, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, and policy makers to ensure our voice is heard where it matters. We run national PR campaigns to promote the benefits of herbal medicine.

We have operated a voluntary register for professional medical herbalists since 1864, and are recognised for our high professional standards.

Our members have completed degree level qualifications or equivalent. We ensure high standards of education in herbal medicine and work to raise the professional standing of medical herbalists.
