Welcome to the twelfth fitness to practise annual report of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) covering the period 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015. This report provides information about the work we do in considering allegations about the fitness to practise of our registrants. In 2014–15, the number of individuals on our Register increased by 2.7 per cent. The number of new fitness to practise concerns we received also increased from 2,069 to 2,170, a percentage rise of 4.8 from the year before. However, despite this increase, the proportion of the Register affected still remains low, with only 0.66 per cent of registrants (or 1 in 166) being subject to a new concern in 2014–15.
