Thank you for your email in which you asked for the number of Occupational Therapists registered with the HCPC.
Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) (2000).
Please note the statistics below is not the exact answer of how many per year return to practice, however, we do have total return to practise OT's up to April 2016. (We cannot currently measure this again as the reporting system is pointing at the wrong place.)
OTs returning to practise between 2-5 years = 233
OTs returning to practise after 5 years or more = 457
