Publication of the HSSR Standards of Proficiency consultation response


The publication of the Higher Specialist Scientist Register (HSSR) standards of proficiency consultation response is now available.


Overall the response to the consultation was supportive of the proposed Standards of Proficiency (SoPs). This is illustrated by the percentage of positive responses to each consultation question in the “Response Statistics” section of this document. It has also further highlighted a number of key issues that need to be addressed before we are in a position to pilot  the Higher Specialist Scientist Training (HSST) Equivalence processes.

The Academy for Healthcare Science is appreciative of the willingness of its Healthcare Science stakeholders to engage and work with us to clarify the content  of the Higher Specialist Scientist Register (HSSR) Standards of Proficiency.
