RCCP Gains PSA Accreditation

Release date: Friday 23 March 2018   NEWS RELEASE   The Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists gains Professional Standards Authority accreditation The Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP) has gained Professional Standards Authority (PSA) accreditation. Patients are able to choose a clinical physiologist belonging to a register vetted and approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, an independent statutory body, accountable to Parliament. The RCCP’s register has been accredited under the Accredited Registers programme. Clinical physiologists on the RCCP’s register will be able to display the Accredited Register quality mark, a sign that they belong to a register which meets the Professional Standards Authority’s robust standards. Trefor Watts, RCCP Chair said: “Following rigorous assessment, we are delighted that our commitment to patient safety and high professional standards has been recognised by the PSA. The quality mark will give extra peace of mind for anyone looking for a clinical physiologist, letting them know that anyone who holds the mark is committed to high standards. The RCCP is pleased to offer the quality mark to clinical physiologists that meet the far reaching standards of our register, as approved by the Professional Standards Authority.” Harry Cayton, Chief Executive of the Professional Standards Authority said: “We are very pleased to accredit RCCP’s register of clinical physiologists. Bringing clinical physiologists into a broad framework of assurance is good for patients, service users and the public and is the best way to promote quality. The programme offers a new layer of protection for anyone looking for health and social care services, and gives clinical physiologists the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to good practice.” Accreditation means that RCCP’s register meets the Professional Standards Authority’s high standards in governance, standard-setting, education and training, management of the register, complaints handling and information. Accredited registers encompass a growing range of occupations and organisations and the Professional Standards Authority may accredit more than one register in any particular occupation. Further information about Accredited Registers is available at http://www.professionalstandards.org.uk/accredited-registers The RCCP holds a voluntary register for practitioners in six disciplines of Clinical Physiology. Its aim is to ensure the highest levels of safety for patients of clinical physiologists.   For further information about the RCCP visit www.rccp.co.uk
