The Register of Clinical Technologists (RCT) and the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC) have been awarded accreditation on the Professional Standards Authority's (PSA) Accredited Registers Programme.
- RCT is a register of around 3,000 healthcare professionals including clinical technologists and healthcare scientists concerned with the practical application of physics, engineering and technology to clinical practice.
- ACC is a professional body and registered charity representing Christian counsellors and psychotherapists in the United Kingdom.
Their recent accreditation award means that professionals registered with the organisations can now display the PSA quality mark, providing employers with the confidence that they are employing trustworthy and competent practitioners from this register.
The quality mark is a sign that practitioners belong to a register which meets the PSA's high standards in relation to governance arrangements, standard setting, education and training, management of their register, complaints handling and information - giving greater assurance to the public and employers.
The PSA's Accredited Registers programme covers a wide range of health and social care practitioners covering 19 registers across a wide range of occupations. A full list of organisations currently on the Accredited Registers Programme can be found on our voluntary register's web page.
