Before you contact us
We are adapting our ways of working right now. As a result of the measures introduced by the government in response to COVID-19, we have moved all our staff to working from home. This means we are no longer able to answer our main telephone lines and have limited access to our post, and are prioritising email correspondence where possible.
Our Registration team receives a high volume of queries and often directs enquirers to pages on our website. To save time, we recommend using the shortcuts below to search for the information you need before contacting the Registration team.
Thank you for your patience during this time.

To apply to join the HCPC Register you'll need to send your details to our Registration team via an application form. You'll need to make a different type of application depending on where you trained, or if you have been on the Register before (readmission).
If you have completed your professional training outside the UK, you will need to apply via our international route.
If you have a question about an international application that isn't answered online, please email our International team. We can help with queries about European Mutual Recognition, qualifications, appeals, fees and more.
You need to have a professional indemnity arrangement in place as a condition of your registration with the HCPC. When registering, you will be asked to make a professional declaration to confirm that you have (or will have) one in place and that it provides the appropriate level of cover.
We ask all applicants applying through the international route to confirm their proficiency with the English language. The ability to communicate effectively in English is crucial to working as a health professional in the UK.
