The National ARTP Spirometry Programme
The Official Spirometry Certification Programme for the UK
National spirometry register
Key to quality assured diagnostic spirometry is the establishment of a national register of certified healthcare professionals and operators. This register will ensure that commissioners, employers, and patients can be assured that healthcare staff performing and/or interpreting diagnostic spirometry hold a valid, current certificate of competence. The register will list individuals’ names according to whichever category of certification that person has achieved. This framework will be phased in with full implementation by 31st March 2021.
