Certificate and registration card

Display your registration certificate prominently in your workplace and carry your registration card so you can show it if requested.

Following our change of name to the Heath and Care Professions Council on Wednesday 1 August 2012, your current HPC registration certificate and card will remain valid. You will receive an updated Health and Care Professions Council registration certificate and card when you next renew your registration.

Public awareness packYou can use both documents to demonstrate that you are registered with us. For example, you may wish to display your certificate in your place of work or carry your card with you in case service users ask to see it.

Please note that information displayed on both documents is correct only at the time of printing. In order to verify your registration status, employers or service users should also be encouraged to use our online Register.

Please make sure you have your card to hand when you use the online system or when you call us. It carries an authentication code which will allow you to access your online registration record at any time to update your personal details or renew your registration at the correct time.
