This document has been revised to bring it up to date with developments in echocardiography and to reflect the changes in Healthcare Scientists' roles introduced by the Modernising Scientific Careers programme. All departments submitting an application, or seeking reaccreditation, after 1st September 2012 will be assessed using the standards within the new 2012 document. Departments with their application already under consideration prior to this will be assessed using the standards in the 2009 document but will be advised of any differences they will need to address before their 5 year reaccreditation date becomes due.

The standards required for each type of accreditation are available here:
