Applications for CSci to pause from 31/08/2018
Important for those who are in the process of applying for CSci
ANS have recently undertaken a Science Council Licence Body Review to offer Chartered Scientist (CSci) to our membership. Although the review went well, there is one action we need to undertake so that we can retain our licence body status. The Science Council have asked for the application process to only consider the Chartered Scientist competencies. Currently the application process is via RCCP, where members can apply for both CSci and RCCP M-level – this is because the application process
considers both CSci *and* RCCP competencies – many of which overlap.
Under the new licence arrangements, we will no longer be able to accept applications which cover mixed competencies.
The Science Council has stipulated that we can only keep the current application process open until 31st August 2018 (i.e. all applications will have had to be submitted, assessed, and actioned by this date).
Applications for RCCP M-level ONLY will continue to be accepted via the RCCP website.
Over the next month, ANS will be working closely with the Science Council in order to produce an application process for Chartered Scientist status which considers CSci competencies only. We cannot envisage that this will be in place by 31st August, but we would like to emphasise that this is just a short pause in the application process for CSci. As soon as we have more information regarding the new process, we will let you know.

It’s Healthcare Science Week
Let us know what your department and Trust are doing.
It is Healthcare Science Week and at Birmingham Children’s Hospital some of our physiologists are explaining to the world what we do.
This your new ANS website.
It has been redesigned to overcome some of the weaknesses of the previous site. The new login form is visible on each page, ANS members can self-register (they will be manually verified though) and most importantly, you can manage your own password in case you forget it.
We have improved the integration with social media too – ANS members can request to join our facebook group directly and also visit our Twitter and Instagram links from these pages.
There is still work to do though – the member’s section will be coming online in the coming days. However if you have any comments on new content please do get in touch.
