Consultation on service user involvement in education and training programmes approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

03/09/2012 - 07/12/2012

This consultation is now closed.

We are seeking the views of stakeholders on a proposal to amend our standards of education and training and supporting guidance to require the involvement of service users in approved programmes.

The standards of education and training guidance already supports and encourages education providers to provide evidence of service user involvement in their programmes as part of showing us how they meet our standards.  However, the involvement of service users is not currently a requirement of the standards themselves. So it is possible that we could approve a programme which did not involve service users at all. We are proposing to amend the standards and guidance so that in future all programmes will need to involve service users in some way in order to be approved by us.

In the consultation we have used the term ‘service user’ to refer to those who typically use or are affected by the services of registrants once they successfully complete an HCPC approved programme and become registered with us. This can include a variety of different individuals and organisations including patients, clients, carers and other members of the multi-disciplinary team.
