New applications from Sonographers to the RCT
Following the closure of the Public Voluntary Register of Sonographers, the Register of Clinical Technologists will open for new standard applications from 1 February 2021.
If you are not already registered on the PVRS and wish to make a new application to the RCT, please apply via the application form and return this to the RCT via firstname.lastname@example.org along with a direct debit mandate. Applications cannot be processed without a direct debit mandate.
If you are currently listed on the PVRS, please complete the transfer application form. Details can be found here.
Sonographers can now become part of a PSA accredited register and will work with the RCT to continue our push for statutory registration for all our registrants.
They sit alongside the existing physics and engineering groups, and this is reflected in the revised Scope of Practice. As the RCT is accredited by the PSA it is better equipped to protect the public and is in a better position to meet the costs of PSA accreditation. A move to a PSA accredited voluntary register was recommended by the PSA in their July 2019 report to Health Education England on the regulation of sonographers.
Please note non-standard applications will require the submission of a portfolio via the RCT equivalence route and will be accepted from Monday 1 March 2021.
Further guidance will be available nearer the above date.
