We are the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). We are a regulator of 15 different health, care and psychological professions.
 
We are consulting on the Standards of proficiency for all 15 of the professions on the Register. These are the standards that we consider necessary for the safe and effective practice of each of the professions we regulate. They describe what professions must know, understand and be able to do at the time they apply to join the Register.

You can find more information about our consultation, including a longer document setting out the background to the review and our consultation questions, as well as further information about us, on our website here.
 
We estimate that responding to this consultation will take about 10 - 20 minutes, depending on how much detail you wish to provide in response to your answers.
 
The consultation closes on Friday 30 October 2020. We will keep this consultation period under review, taking into consideration any impact of COVID-19.
