Number of Practitioner Psychologists registered with the HCPC - December 2015

Thank you for your email in which you asked for statistics on Practitioner Psychologists.

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (2000).

I have attached PDF documents which show the number of applicants that were approved for Registration each year. The figures do not include those who were removed or may have lapsed for various reasons, therefore the cumulative data is not correct. The current figure of PYL'S as of today is depicted in the report titled Registrants by profession

Also, this information can be found on our website in the Council minutes. PYL's first came on to the Register in 2009 and in the November Finance report it will show you the UK Registrants total for when we first received them. Please note that a Grandparenting process was then in place from 2009 until 2012. The link directly below will send them to the page where the report is located.

The following information can be found in the same section but for this year in the Operations report to Council.
