Welcome to the HCPC audience section. Please use the links on the left for information related to each group.
We are a regulator, and we were set up to protect the public. To do this, we keep a Register of health and care professionals who meet our standards for their training, professional skills, behaviour and health.
We currently regulate 16 health and care professions. All of these professions have at least one professional title that is protected by law, including those shown above. This means, for example, that anyone using the titles 'physiotherapist' or 'dietitian' must be registered with us.
It is a criminal offence for someone to claim that they are registered with us when they are not, or to use aprotected title that they are not entitled to use. We will prosecute people who commit these crimes.
