New Council for the Health and Care Professions Council appointed

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Council. There are twelve members in total, all of whom have taken office in January 2014. This is in line with the government recommendation that all regulatory bodies should be overseen by smaller, more board-like Councils.


Each Council member has been appointed for the skills they will bring, including a strong mix of governance, management and financial abilities. The new Council has also been drawn from the professions we regulate as well as lay backgrounds to bring a diverse mix of experience and knowledge.

Chair of the HCPC, Anna van der Gaag, commented:

The last few years has seen tremendous growth and change for the HCPC. I am pleased that we have recruited a Council with such a strong mix of skills, ability and experience drawn from all parts of the UK. This is particularly important for us as we continue working with our stakeholders in order to ensure we carry out our primary purpose of public protection effectively. I very much look forward to continuing this work with the restructured Council.

Chief Executive and Registrar of the HCPC, Marc Seale, commented;

I very much welcome the newly appointed Council members and am looking forward to working with them to ensure the highest standards of public protection. Council members play a fundamental governance role in setting the strategy and policy and ensuring HCPC fulfils its statutory duty. They also ensure we maintain efficient regulatory processes and that the standards we set continue to be fit for purpose.

An attendance allowance of £310 per day and incurred expenses is payable for member roles.
