COVID-19 Temporary Register

The closing date for temporary student registration has been extended to 30 November 2020

We believe this will help provide students with the necessary time to complete their studies and gain permanent registration with HCPC, whilst also ensuring continuity of workforce capacity. More information on our approach

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the HCPC has worked with the UK Government to create a COVID-19 temporary register, of two parts

Our intention in doing so is to ensure there are no regulatory barriers to the following two groups practising on a temporary basis: 

COVID-19 Temporary Register 

COVID-19 temporary register of all former registrants who have de-registered in the past three years. We will ensure nobody appears on this list if they have been subject to fitness to practise concerns in the past.

COVID-19 Temporary Register (Students)

COVID-19 temporary register of third year students on UK approved programmes, who have completed all their clinical practice placements.

No fees will be charged in relation to the COVID-19 temporary register(s).
