The National Clinical Homecare Association (NCHA) was established in 2006 to represent and promote the patient-led interests of specific organisations whose primary activity is to provide medical supplies, support and clinical services to patients in the community. The National Clinical Homecare Association (NCHA) aims to raise the awareness of the benefits of clinical homecare, and to ensure that high standards in terms of the provision of clinical homecare are maintained. As an industry body the NCHA offers many benefits to commissioners, clinicians and patients.
The purpose of the NCHA Code of Practice is

- to demonstrate a clear commitment to high quality services
- to place the patient at the heart of all that we do
This Code of Practice is a Standard of the NCHA which governs the behaviour of NCHA Members who agree to abide by this Code’s criteria.
