SINGAPORE - The Ministry of Health's Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC) will start registering radiographers and radiation therapists from Friday (April 15) to ensure higher professional standards and better care for the public.

Other healthcare professionals - occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech language therapists - have been regulated by the AHPC since April 2013.

There will be a one-year grace period up to April 14 next year for practising radiographers and radiation therapists in Singapore to get registered.

They will be granted full, restricted, conditional or temporary registration based on their training, qualifications, practice experience and other relevant credentials.

Those not yet practising in Singapore on the registration commencement date are required to register before they can begin their practice.

Registrants can visit the AHPC website for more information.
