May I thank Graham Driver for posting the VRCT update - I had planned to do so later this week. May I also ask people to read the information very carefully, especially where it points out:-
"It should be stressed, that those already on the voluntary register or, currently aspiring to join, do not require to possess a degree in Clinical Technology in order to be regulated. However, by 2008/2009 all new entrants to the HPC statutory register will require to hold a degree in Clinical Technology."
This means that if you are currently working in the profession you do not need a clinical technology degree either now or in the future! Thus if you have gained entry to the Register with an ONC, C&G, HNC or any other similar qualification that is acceptable now and for the foreseeable future.
