May I point out that there is no formal link between the Agenda for Change process and the regulation of Clinical Technologists. The profiles developed for Agenda for Change have not been used or considered by the VRCT team.

Additionally, the criteria used by the HPC to decide whether a profession should be regulated or not are based on the profession's "potential to cause harm", not on its educational qualifications!

Finally, IPEM, ART and IIE are currently working hard to develop partnerships with educational providers in order to produce relevant clinical engineering degree courses for Technologists.
