In the first instance, any concerns can be taken to the Chair of the GCRB either directly or by emailing If the concern is not resolved in this manner then it may be appropriate to take it to the Academy for Healthcare Science (AHCS).

Appeals against deferred portfolio assessments are managed by the AHCS. Please find an overview of the process for making an appeal or complaint in relation to the GCRB portfolio process in the document below: AHCS Appeals and Complaints Procedure (GCRB Registration Portfolio Process)
