I have Clinical Physiology Registration with both RCCP and AHCS, what should I do?

In June 2021 the business of the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP) was transferred to the Academy for Healthcare Science (AHCS).  Registration with both the AHCS and RCCP is of equal status and during the next 12 months, the  RCCP and AHCS Clinical Physiologist Practitioner register will be aligned.

The work to unify the  register will be completed by October 2023 but from the 28th of March 2022, new applications for Clinical Physiology Practitioner registration will only be accepted through the RCCP (
