About Us

Allied health professionals have responsibilities and obligations to their clients and to the broader community to provide safe, beneficial, responsible and competent health care which is responsive to individual, group and community needs, and the professional situation, within a context of justice and respect for people’s rights and dignity.           

Allied health professionals have responsibilities and obligations to their colleagues and to their profession, but these will always be secondary to their responsibilities and obligations to the public. 

Customers have the right to expect that health professionals providing professional services do so in a competent and contemporary manner that meets best practice standards.  The Health Practitioners’ Act set out provisions for maintaining competence and continuing professional development which will apply under the HPA Act no. 33 of 2006.

The Act states under Functions of Council Section 61(i) “to promote high standards of professional conduct and professional education, training and competence among persons registered as allied health practitioners.”

The Allied Health Council will develop profession-specific standards that will be endorsed in accordance with the HPA Act 2006.  As such, the standards specified by the Allied Health Council will form the legal benchmark of professional practice standards for the relevant profession.

The Health Practitioners Act was  enacted  in 2006 to regularize the functionality and registration  of the Medical, Dental and Allied Health practitioners who may wish to practice in St. Lucia. The Act was divided into two parts:

  1. Medical & Dental Practitioners
  2. Allied Health Practitioners

Of which The  Act scheduled  twenty four (24) disciplines. The Act came into force in July 2009 after it was gazetted; thereafter the Council was established.
