Policy on removing someone from the RCCP Register

This policy document sets out the circumstances and procedure under which an individual will be removed from the register.

An individual will be removed from the register if they:
  1. Advise RCCP that they are no longer working in one of the disciplines of Clinical Physiology.
  2. Advise RCCP that they are no longer working within the United Kingdom.
  3. Advise RCCP that they no longer wish to remain on the RCCP register, even though they will continue to be working in one of the disciplines of Clinical Physiology in the UK.
  4. Fail to make payment of the required registration fee at the required time set by the RCCP Council.
  5. Fail to confirm that they meet the requirements set by the RCCP Council to remain on the register.
  6. Fail to comply with the requirements of an RCCP audit of Continued Professional Development (including an application for deferral of their audit, if applicable).
  7. Fail to respond to a request from RCCP in relation to any matter connected to their registration within a timescale set by RCCP.
 
Process for removal of an entry from the RCCP Register.
  • In the case of circumstances 1 to 3 above
Within seven days of receiving a notification from the registrant that one of the circumstances is relevant to them they will be removed from the register by RCCP administration once the Registrar has approved their removal. A letter as outlined in Appendix One will be sent to the registrant.
Sometimes the RCCP will be advised that a circumstance applies to a registrant from a third party, such as an employer or work colleague. In such circumstances, RCCP will establish the validity of a reason for removal directly from the individual registrant who is subject to removal concerned before commencing the removal process.
  • In the case of circumstance 4 and/or 5 above
After 60 days and not more than 75 days of the due date of the payment of the registration fee and/or the completion of the annual declaration by the registrant they will be removed from the register by RCCP administration once the Registrar has approved their removal. A letter as outlined in Appendix Two will be sent to the registrant.
  • In the case of circumstance 6 above
Within 7 days of the end date of the CPD audit (including any extension agreed by the Registrar) registrant will be removed from the register by RCCP administration once the Registrar has approved their removal. A letter as outlined in Appendix Three will be sent to the registrant.
  • In the case of circumstance 7 above
Within 7 days of the expiry of the timescale set by RCCP the registrant will be removed from the register by RCCP administration once the registrar has approved their removal. A letter as outlined in Appendix Four will be sent to the registrant.

Appeals

A registrant who believes that they have been incorrectly removed from the register shall, within 14 days of receipt of a letter advising of their removal submit to the RCCP evidence that they do meet the requirements of registration with RCCP contrary to the reasons sent out in the notification.
The Registrar of RCCP will consider such evidence from the Registrant and advise them within 14 days that their registration has been restored and if it hasn’t been restored, the reason(s) why.
The Registrant may further appeal to the RCCP Council by email to the Chairman chair@rccp.co.uk containing both their evidence for restoration to the register and the response from the registrar giving reasons why their restoration has not been accepted. Failure to provide both will mean that the appeal will not be considered by the RCCP Council. The decision of the Council shall be final.
