Health Professions Council (HPC) launches new free iPhone app

New iPhone app allows instant access to the HPC Register on the go


The Health Professions Council is the first UK health and care regulator to launch a free iPhone application aimed at the public and its stakeholders. The new application provides an extension to the online Register making it available to the public anywhere and at any point. It works in the same way as the online Register but is designed to deliver a high quality user experience allowing the public to easily check that their professional is registered.

The app also allows members of the public, stakeholders, registrants, health and care professionals, students and employers to keep abreast of the latest news from the HPC and access to media releases. It also provides information on how to raise a concern and enables the user to communicate directly with the HPC about their concern.

Marc Seale, Chief Executive of the Health Professions Council, said:

Those who download the free of charge HPC app will be able to easily check whether the person they are seeing is registered with us. It also provides information on how to raise any concerns they may have about a HPC registered professional directly with us.

Earlier this year the HPC launched its social media pages and now has a presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn with the aim of further engaging with registrants, the public and stakeholders. The objective is to increase social media conversations, build an extended audience on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, and drive service users to check that their professional is registered with the HPC and therefore meeting national standards.

Marc Seale added:

It is essential that the HPC communicates effectively with its key audiences, particularly given the level of change taking place across the health and care sector. We launched our social media pages earlier this year and this app is another way for the public and stakeholders to keep up to date with the latest news and developments and to check that their professional is registered.

The app is free to download and enables users to:

  • Check the online HPC Register;
  • Learn more about how to raise a concern about a professional; and
  • Keep up-to-date with HPC news.

As part of the promotion for the iPhone app we have created a video to demonstrate to viewers the ease of use of this app. This is available on our website and YouTube
