UK applicants join international applicants in being able to submit their application for Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration completely online.
Writing on its website, the HCPC said:
Rather than needing to download, fill in and email a PDF form, UK applicants will now be able to enter their details, make their declarations and upload certified documentation all in one place. By making this stage of the process easier and more streamlined, we hope to improve experiences across the board.
The UK applications form was piloted with a small number of participants who trialled the form and left their feedback. We would like to thank everyone who took part in this.
The new form is supported by online UK applications guidance, available via the UK applications section of our website. Applicants will need to read this, as well as the standards of proficiency for their profession, the standards of conduct, performance and ethics and the standards for CPD, before submitting their application.
Any applicant who requires a paper form for accessibility reasons will still be accommodated, on request.
