Standards of conduct, performance and ethics

Date of publication: 26/01/2016
 
Category: Standards
 
 
Audience: Education providers, Employers, Journalists and media, Members of the public, Prospective registrants, Registrants
 
 
SCPE front promoWe revised the standards of conduct, performance and ethics (SCPE) following public consultation and these are effective from 26 January 2016.

The SCPE are the standards we set for all the professionals on our Register, stating in broad terms our expectations of their behaviour and conduct.

They are important because they help us make decisions about the character of professionals who apply to our Register and we use them if someone raises a concern about a registrant’s practice.

Importantly for service users they outline what the public should expect from their health and care professional.
