HCPC statement following Education Secretary Nicky Morgan's announcement today about plans to establish a new body for social work.

14/01/2016 - 15:52


We were very surprised by the announcement today that it is the Government’s intention to set up a new body for social work in England, which over time, will replace the Health and Care Professions Council as the regulator.

We are an efficient and effective regulator with robust regulatory processes and standards for conduct, education and professional skills.  We will continue to fulfil our primary aim of public protection by regulating the 16 health and care professions on our Register.

We look forward to seeing the detail of this decision and will work closely with Government as they bring forward any necessary legislation to facilitate this change.
