A new register to replace MIA
What does this mean for current users of the MIA scheme?
Holders of the MIA card will still have the same level of access to hospitals as they do now – MIA cards are still valid. Card holders have until 30 July 2020 to meet the LSI Register Level requirements.
Do I need to be on the LSI Register?
Only if you need to access hospitals that have signed up to MIA card scheme (now only issued as LSI accreditation when approved by the Registry). There are, of course, other card providers, most notably IntelliCentrics, and trusts that have signed up to other schemes will not accept the LSI credential.
Please note that neither Wilmington Healthcare nor any other training provider is endorsed by the Life Science Industry Register and in all circumstances, admission to the Register is solely at the discretion of the LSI Register itself.
A simpler, more efficient way to achieving your accreditation with Wilmington Healthcare
We have simplified our approach to accreditation to make this transition as seamless and convenient as possible, creating a specific module for each Level of the new Registry (there are three levels). This will save you time and give you confidence that you have covered everything for the level you need, that can be achieved through online learning and it’s all in one place.
NB: you may have noticed that some training providers have simply added large numbers of modules to their existing courses, meaning more work for you if you wish to be LSI accredited.
