Health Care Professions Council Registration Fees

Back to all Motions

2015 Health Care Service Group Conference
5 December 2014

Conference welcomes the ongoing campaign against the rising cost of Nursing and Midwifery Council registration but notes with dismay that the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) has similarly raised the costs of registration over a short period of time.

Given that Allied Health Professions along with other NHS staff have suffered a real terms pay cut over the last four years, this rise in registration fees could have a serious impact on family finances.

Conference calls upon the Health Service Group Executive to run a high profile campaign against the rising cost of HCPC registration and any further increases for this group of staff.
