JOINT STATEMENT BETWEEN THE ACADEMY OF HEALTHCARE SCIENCE (AHCS) AND THE GENETIC COUNSELLOR REGISTRATION BOARD (GCRB)

Monday, 26th November 2018

 

This is an update on the joint endeavours of the GCRB and AHCS to explore a process of group equivalence to acquire HCPC statutory regulation as clinical scientists: genomic counselling.

Our proposal has been discussed informally with the HCPC (Healthcare Professions Council). The feedback from HCPC has been that our proposed approach, based on a sampling method, would not be in keeping with the HCPC-approved STP Certificate of Equivalence process.

The GCRB will continue to explore with AHCS the feasibility of alternative proposals that incorporate the feedback received from the HCPC and will ensure that the profession remains appropriately regulated under the auspices of the Professional Standards Authority.

Updates will continue to be placed on the GCRB website.
