Thanks Jim for clarifying that registration will apply equally to the private sector. I'm encouraged to hear this as it could also impact on the viability of the univestity courses which will need to be developed. But going back to my other point re who will need to be registered to do what? Has anything been published or is there any draft guidance on this? There are some staff working as low grade technicians for whome registration would be not be achievable and who will not be eligible for registration. Surely there must be some way they can continue without registration but perhaps under supervision. I realise it's early days for any clear definitions linked to grades but this group of staff are very worried. I guess it comes down to the definition of a Clinical Technologist.
