After many long years of work to improve the status of our profession throughout the UK, we are closer than ever to achieving our dream of regulation for medical Illustrators.
The IMI Regulation team, headed by Carol Fleming, have been working hard to prepare the necessary documentation that will allow the CAMIP register to be accepted into the Academy for Healthcare Science’s (AHCS) main register, and also be approved by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This will mean some big changes to your voluntary registration, since the register will be part of the AHCS register which is managed independently of the profession, the cost will increase. The details of this have not yet been finalised, however IMI Council have agreed to set aside funding to help you with your transition to the new scheme.
There are some steps you can take to be prepared for this big change.
It is my intention to keep you well informed of the progress of the application process. The work is gathering speed and all parties are confident that regulation will be happening this year. I appreciate that there will be many questions, and your Council together with the Regulation team, will address your concerns as quickly as possible. Please drop me an email anytime.
Be prepared, Regulation is coming!
