HCPC COVID-19 our approach to temporary registration

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the HCPC has worked with the UK Government to create a COVID-19 temporary register*, of two parts.

Our intention in doing so is to ensure there are no regulatory barriers to the following two groups practising on a temporary basis:

  • Former registrants who have de-registered within the last three years.
  • Final year students, on UK approved programmes, who have completed all their clinical practice placements.


  • Multiple Workforce Groups
