The HCPC is now open for applications for three new Council members
The roles include two registrant members, who must belong to one of the fifteen professions which HCPC regulates, and one lay member, who must not be or have been a registrant with HCPC.
The three new members will be joining HCPC at a critical moment for health and care professionals. The roles will provide the successful applicants with an opportunity to play a pivotal role in the current and future regulation of the sector, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Christine Elliott, Chair of HCPC, comments on what the roles involve:
“Being a Council member is a truly rewarding and fascinating role. The successful applicants will gain a unique opportunity to share their opinions and perspectives on the future of health and care regulation, and help to shape our progress on key issues such as equality, diversity and inclusion, and the education of health and care professionals.”
Council members Sonya Lam and Stephen Wordsworth, who are both registrant members, will leave Council in December, having both served the full 8-year maximum appointment term.
Christine Elliott adds:
“Sonya and Stephen have made vital contributions to the running of HCPC over the last eight years, including in the development and delivery of our new Corporate Strategy. We are sad that their time with us has come to an end, and we wish them the very best.”
