Training, development and registration (renal technology)

Training is through the NHS Practitioner Training Programme.

To enter through the NHS Practitioner Training Programme (PTP) you’ll need to take a full-time (usually 3-year) accredited integrated BSc degree in healthcare science (renal technology) at university. At least 50 weeks of workplace-based training in the NHS is included in these programmes. For the most up to date list of accredited BSc healthcare science degrees, please use our course finder. Applications for full-time courses are made through UCAS.

Programmes are often supported by the development of work based assessment tools, assessment of equivalent learning and the development of academic careers.
