The HCPC Register shows whether a health professional is registered online and, as a result, they are practicing legally, safely and effectively.
The HCPC approval is awarded to Sport and Exercise Psychologists that are able to meet a stringent set of standards relating to high quality proficiency, demonstrating a professional, ethical and efficient service. The registration assures clients that the health professional is committed to continual professional development (CPD) and measures up to exacting the standards, to ensure that their activities are effective.
This means for a health professional to stay on the register they must carry out learning activities on a regular basis, keep a record of different kinds of learning activities and carry out activities that might benefit the service users. The HCPC online Register at www.hcpc-uk.org is a free facility that allows you to verify the registration status of an active health professional.
