Once Registered with the RCCP, there are a number of considerations for you to be aware of in order to maintain your registration. These include;
Contact Details Update
It is essential that all registrants update their contact details when required. This is a condition of your registration. This includes both your primary and alternative email addresses, your address and your current place of work. Please log into your RCCP online dashboard to make changes.
Compliance with standards
As an RCCP registrant you are expected to abide by the following standards:
*Please note AHCS is publishing this interim update to the Standards of Proficiency for Healthcare Scientist Practitioners to facilitate the merging of the RCCP and AHCS Clinical Physiology part of the Register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

You are also asked to have read and understood the RCCP Fitness to Practise Procedure
In order to maintain your registration, you are required to renew on annual basis. Our Registration Year runs from 1st May to 30th April in any given year. As part of this process we ask you to do the following:
Private Practice and Indemnity Insurance
Please also note that the four UK Health Departments are aware of concerns that have arisen about the fact that some healthcare professionals currently practise without insurance cover, or insufficient cover and that in such circumstances those whom they treat may be left without means to seek redress in the event of a negative incident negligently caused by the activities of a healthcare professional(s). RCCP strongly recommends that you ensure you have appropriate indemnity cover in place, particularly if working outside the NHS. If you work in private practice you are recommended to ensure that patients, clients and the public are aware of your indemnity insurance arrangements.
If you offer services privately, you must be covered by appropriate indemnity insurance. You must inform us if this is the case and supply your policy number and expiry date. This can be entered at any time using your registrants portal and accessing the "other" tab.
