The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) has today launched a consultation on draft revised Standards of conduct, performance and ethics.
These are the high level ethical standards we set for all the professionals we register, laying out in broad terms the behaviour we expect of them. They reflect both public expectations of professionals and the high standards that professionals expect of each other.
HCPC are reviewing the Standards to make sure they continue to be fit for purpose, up-to-date and well understood by registrants and the public.
The consultation will run from 1 April until 26 June 2015. Once the consultation has closed we will consider the feedback we received in finalising the standards. We expect that new standards will be in place in early 2016.
