Providing the expertise the HCPC needs for its decision making
Partners are independent contractors and are not HCPC employees. They provide the expertise the HCPC needs for its decision making, and ensure that we have appropriate professional and lay (public) input into what we do.
The broad term 'Partners' includes a variety of different roles that can be filled by people with different experience and qualifications, from members of the public to qualified lawyers and solicitors, as well as health and care professionals on our Register.
The HCPC is committed to equality of opportunity and actively guards against unfair discrimination on any grounds (including sexual orientation, religion or beliefs, race, sex, age or disability).
About the HCPC
We protect the public by regulating 15 health and care professions in the UK.
To do this we:
- set standards for professionals' education and training and practice;
- approve programmes which professionals must complete to register with us;
- keep a register of professionals, known as 'registrants', who meet our standards; and
- take action if professionals on our Register do not meet our standards.
