COVID-19 Temporary Register

The temporary register is now closed to new additions. The temporary register for students is now closed for all professions except biomedical science and clinical science students. More information on this change and our approach

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the HCPC has worked with the UK Government to create a COVID-19 temporary register, of two parts

Our intention in doing so is to ensure there are no regulatory barriers to the following two groups practising on a temporary basis: 

COVID-19 Temporary Register 

COVID-19 temporary register of all former registrants who have de-registered in the past three years. We will ensure nobody appears on this list if they have been subject to fitness to practise concerns in the past.

COVID-19 Temporary Register (Students)

COVID-19 temporary register of third year biomedical science and clinical science students on UK approved programmes, who have completed all their clinical practice placements and requested to remain on the temporary register.

No fees will be charged in relation to the COVID-19 temporary register(s).
