HPC consults on annotation criteria

The Health Professions Council has launched a consultation on draft criteria to decide whether to annotate a post-registration qualification on its register.

The consultation is also looking at whether the HPC should annotate qualifications in neuropsychology and podiatric surgery. Included in the proposals is that post-registration qualifications should be recorded ‘only in exceptional circumstances’. This would be where annotation would increase public protection and where it is deemed necessary for a function or role to be performed ‘safely and effectively’. Sally Gosling, CSP assistant director of practice and development (pictured left), said the proposals ‘form a potentially significant development in how the HPC exercises its regulatory role and serves the public interest’. The consultation runs until 1 February 2011 and the consultation document can be downloaded at Members wishing to add comments to the CSP response should email d& by 4 January.
