HCPC to Appoint Four New Council Members

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is seeking to appoint three lay members and one registrant member to its Council. The appointments are expected to commence from 1 January 2015.


As a UK-wide regulator, HCPC is encouraging applications from individuals across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. As there is a requirement that each of the four countries in the UK is represented on the Council, the HCPC is also seeking to appoint individuals to at least two of these roles who live or work in each of Wales and Northern Ireland.

Council members play a key role in setting strategy and policy and ensuring the HCPC fulfils its statutory duties and responsibilities. They also act as ambassadors for the HCPC representing the Council’s public protection role.


Chair of the Health and Care Professions Council, Anna van der Gaag, commented;

“Maintaining a UK wide perspective has always been of great importance to the HCPC, and throughout our history we have been fortunate to have a Council with wide expertise and a shared commitment to delivering protection for the public. I look forward to working with four new members who will be joining the Council at this time.”

The recruitment is overseen by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) and the final decision rests with the Privy Council.

The closing date for completed applications is 5pm on Friday 12 September 2014.
