Contact UKCHIP if you have a concern or wish to make a complaint about a registered health or social care informatics professional The UKCHIP Education Quality Assurance Scheme incorporates a register of accredited qualifications, training and courses which have met the criteria which support registration as a health and social care informatics professional As previously notified in December 2016, when the UKCHIP stopped taking new registrations and renewals, the public register of Health Informatics professionals will close in early February 2018 once all current registrations expire.
