Good Scientific Practice (GSP) sets out the principles, values and the standards of behaviour and practise for the Healthcare Science workforce. These standards and values must be achieved and maintained in the delivery of work activities, the provision of care and personal conduct. GSP is contextualised for roles within Healthcare Science by the Standards of Proficiency for Healthcare Science Practitioners, Standards of Proficiency for Clinical Scientists and Standards of Proficiency for Higher Specialist Scientists.

The HCPC Standards of Proficiency are the professional standards which every Clinical Scientist must meet in order to become registered, and must continue to meet in order to maintain their registration. All STP curricula are designed to meet these Standards and successful completion will lead to award of a Certificate of Equivalence or a Certificate of Attainment by the AHCS which can be submitted to HCPC to register as a Clinical Scientist.
