The RCT management board

The RCT is administered by the RCT management board. This includes:

  • the registrar
  • the assistant registrar
  • two named representatives of each professional organisation participating in the management of the RCT: the Association of Renal Technologists (ART), the Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management (IHEEM) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM)
  • two representatives elected from the RCT registrant body
  • two lay members

The board is responsible for all aspects of the management of the register including overseeing the assessing and approving of applications to join the RCT. It is also responsible for reviewing and updating the criteria for membership of the RCT as well as all processes and documentation used. It is supported by an administrative team from the IPEM office.

The board actively promotes the RCT to government, the Department of Health, government agencies, the Health and Care Professions Council, other professional bodies, educational establishments and the medical device industry.
