Revised Application & Assessment Guidelines in response to COVID-19 outbreak

24/03/2020 14:50:11


During the period of locally and nationally recommended social distancing and self-isolation resulting from the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the Association of Clinical Scientists (ACS) is committed to ensure that as much normal practice as possible resumes with regards to the processing of applications and assessments for award of the Certificate of Attainment for onward registration as a Clinical scientist with the Health & Care Professions Council-UK (HCPC-UK).

It must be recognised that whilst the situation remains these revised guidelines are subject to review and delays may occur in particular since our pool of assessors, all of whom are registered Clinical scientists, may have limited time to assist us in conducting assessments.


We are implementing revisions to the guidelines, effective from Tuesday 24th March 2020, to provide a portal for the electronic submission of portfolios and remote video assessment interviews.
