Case Studies.

Case study 1

Mr Peregrine (Perry) White is an HCPC registered hearing aid dispenser. The homepage of his website, easyfithearingaids.co.uk, promotes his HCPC registration by highlighting his registration number alongside the HCPC registration logo. An accompanying link then clicks through to a separate page which tells service users about the role of the HCPC and our Register of health and care professionals.

'As an independent hearing aid dispenser, I am often asked whether I have the same qualifications and experience as dispensers working for large national and multinational chains. I find that providing clients with information about the HCPC and my registration details, dispels any fears that they might have.'

Case study 2

Ursula Pley is a self-employed dietitian. The About Me section of her company website highlights Ursula’s credentials, including her HCPC registration. She has also detailed the fact that dietitian is a protected title, referencing copy sourced from professional body website, www.bda.uk.com. In addition to displaying the HCPC registration logo, the webpage includes links to www.hcpc-uk.org, directing service users to where they can find further information about the HCPC.

'My HCPC registration provides an assurance to patients. It is important to promote my registration to emphasise my qualifications and to highlight the importance of providing a quality service.'
