HPC return to practice requirements scrapped

5 July 2005 - 9:10am

The Health Professions Council has withdrawn its return to practice requirements. Read on for more information.

The Health Professions Council has withdrawn its return to practice requirements. Under guidelines that have been in existence for approximately eighteen months, physiotherapists, and other allied health professionals (AHPs), who had been out of practice for over two years were required to complete between 30 and 60 days supervised practice before being able to rejoin the HPC register and practice as a physiotherapist. However, from 14 April 2005, the HPC has withdrawn its requirements and physiotherapists and other AHPs are able to reapply for readmission to the HPC register without completing specific supervised practice requirements. Further details can be found on the HPC website at www.hcpc-uk.org. Physiotherapists returning after a break are however required to continue to meet the HPC Standards of Proficiency and may therefore choose to undertake a period of supervised practice or additional study. A consultation on future return to practice requirements will be undertaken before any further guidelines are introduced.
