We have no current plans to regulate clinical technologists. However, we keep the list of professions subject to statutory regulation under review. On 6 January 2022, we launched a public consultation on the criteria for determining when statutory regulation of a healthcare profession is appropriate. The consultation is open until 31 March 2022 and we will consider its findings in due course.
