The Faculty of Clinical Informatics has been established as the UK professional membership body for all clinical informaticians, including health and social care professionals, registered with the Professional Standards Authority.

Key objectives for the Faculty up to 2020 include; establishing clinical informatics as a recognised profession, developing professional standards, supporting revalidation, providing training and accreditation for individuals and courses, and supporting recruitment and careers in clinical informatics.

The Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Physicians have been key in its initiation and the NHS Paperless 2020 Building a Digital Ready Workforce programme has provided supporting resources as has TPP.
