Health, disability and becoming a health and care professional

Disabled people have a positive contribution to make to the professions we regulate. Having a disability should not be seen as a barrier to becoming a health and care professional or becoming registered by us

We have produced guidance on becoming a health and care professional which you may find useful if you are:

  • a disabled person who is considering becoming a health and care professional;
  • a disabled student who is training to become a health and care professional;
  • a careers advisor who is giving advice to disabled people;
  • working in education and training and making decisions about disabled students applying to an approved programme;
  • teaching, supervising or supporting disabled students on approved programmes or practice placements; or
  • an occupational health professional making assessments about disabled students.
