MIA Membership requirements

MIA offers healthcare providers visibility on who is on-site and assurance that visiting company representatives have the relevant credentials required for entry to these medically sensitive locations.

It is a mandatory requirement of MIA healthcare providers (which represent the majority of NHS Trusts) that all MIA Members are fully compliant.


You will need to determine which level of MIA Membership is appropriate for your role and provide evidence of relevant training before applying to MIA.


Your MIA Membership includes access to the online training courses required to meet any of the MIA standards but depending on your chosen level, you may also need to provide other credentials such as a DBS on your application.


Once your application has been accepted by MIA, you will be issued with a MIA ID card which you must use to register any healthcare provider visits.
