What is the HCPC?

We are a regulator of health and care professions in the UK

  • Our role is to protect the public.
  • By law, people must be registered with us to work in the UK in any of the professions listed here.
  • We only register people who meet our standards so that they can practise safely and effectively.
  • We check the quality of training courses so that when someone completes one which meets our standards, we can register them.
  • We also make sure that someone who has trained outside of the UK has met our standards before we register them.
