The Register of Clinical Technologists (the RCT) – formerly the Voluntary Register of Clinical Technologists – was formed in 2000 with the aim of protecting the public by advocating statutory, professional regulation for Clinical Technologists.  You can download our information leaflet for patients and the public here.

The register now holds the details of almost 3000 healthcare professionals who have achieved the standards set out by the RCT through education or equivalence. They abide by a regularly-reviewed Code of Professional Conduct and take part in continuing professional development (CPD)  to maintain their professional status for the protection of the public at all times.

Our register has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) under its Accredited Registers programme since September 2015.  Accredited registers are a new approach to regulation recently established by government in preference to statutory registers.  In order to obtain accreditation an organisation must show they have met the PSA’s specific, demanding standards relating to governance, standards for registrants (including education and training) and management of the register, by way of a rigorous application process.  Organisations are then re-accredited each year provided they can show they are still meeting the PSA standards.

We register technologists working in nuclear medicine, radiotherapy physics, radiation physics, medical engineering, radiation engineering, rehabilitation engineering and renal technology.
