Who we are

The Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP) registers Clinical Physiologists in the UK. We were set up to protect the public. We only register professionals who meet our standards for their training, professional skills and behaviour. We can take action when registered clinical physiologists fall below these standards.

Clinical physiologists are a group of healthcare professionals who are involved in diagnosis and management of a wide range of conditions - many of which are sensitive or invasive. We register members of the following professions:


  • Audiologists
  • Cardiac physiologists
  • Clinical Exercise Physiologists
  • Educational audiologists
  • Gastrointestinal physiologists
  • Hearing therapists
  • Neurophysiologists
  • Respiratory physiologists
  • Sleep physiologists
