Registration renewal

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration renewal period for speech and language therapists, clinical scientists and prosthetists / orthotists opens on Saturday 1 July 2017 and closes on Saturday 30 September 2017. The HCPC will write to all speech and language therapists, clinical scientists and prosthetists / orthotists at the beginning of July with information on how to renew.

To renew, registrants must complete a professional declaration and pay a renewal fee no later than midnight on Saturday 30 September 2017 to avoid being removed from the Register. The easiest and quickest way to renew is online via www.hcpc-uk.org/renew

A random sample of 2.5 per cent of the profession will also be selected to submit a continuing professional development (CPD) profile during this period. Those selected for audit will receive a separate letter after the renewal notices are sent out. More information, including sample profiles, activity types and video guidance, is available at www.hcpc-uk.org/registrants/cpd

The fee is tax deductible, which means that registrants paying the standard 20 per cent tax rate can reclaim a 20 per cent refund from HMRC. Sammuel Yemane, HCPC Registration Manager, commented:

    "Our online system provides a quick and easy way to renew, and we want to encourage registrants to use this resource. We would advise all speech and language therapists, clinical scientists and prosthetists / orthotists who wish to remain on the Register to renew as early as possible to ensure that you can continue to practice without disruption."

Registrants can email registration@hcpc-uk.org with any queries on renewal or the CPD audit process Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.
