What happens if I don't renew

You need to be registered with us in order to practise your profession and to use the protected titles associated with your profession

What happens if I don't renew in time?

If you don't complete all steps of the renewal process before the renewal deadline, or if you remove your direct debit instruction without having an alternative payment method in place, your name will be removed from the Register.

If your name is removed from the Register, you must cease practising and using the protected titles associated with your profession. We will contact you by email to let you know if your name has been removed from the Register.

To add your details back to the Register after they have come off, you'll need to complete a readmission form.

You can complete a 'short readmission form' if you apply for readmission within one month of your profession's renewal window closing, this will also be emailed to you.

What do I do if I no longer need to be registered?

If you no longer need to be registered with the HCPC, you can remove your name from the Register.

To do this, log in to your online account and click on the green deregistration banner. You will then need to answer some short questions and make the relevant declarations. We will notify you once your deregistration request has been processed.

For more information about the deregistration process, please see below:
