Become a Bupa-recognised therapist, treat our Pay As You Go customers and promote your practice on Finder.

In response to helpful feedback from consultants, we’re introducing a new digital process which will make applying for Bupa recognition quicker and easier.

While we do this, we’re not progressing new applications for a short period.

We expect our new digital process to be available by the end of June 2022 and consultants can apply for Bupa recognition via this page after this date.

Thank you.
