CPD requirements for reaccreditation

Log on to your BSCCP online account @ on or after the 1st September 2021  and click on MY ACCOUNT at the top of the screen to complete the BSCCP Reaccreditation Process

Colposcopists must have attended at least one BSCCP recognised intermediate/advanced postgraduate meeting, or alternatively a BSCCP Annual Scientific Meeting, in the preceding 3 years at the time of submission. It is essential to keep and be able to present attendance certificates as evidence.

Which meetings and courses are suitable for reaccreditation?

Not all courses/meetings are suitable for reaccreditation.  It is imperative that you ensure the meeting you are attending is recognised for reaccreditation.  If you are in any doubt, please contact the BSCCP office to clarify.

Please visit the BSCCP website regularly to view suitable upcoming courses.
