HCPC press release



Registration renewal for clinical scientists starts Saturday 1 July 2017


The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration renewal period for clinical scientists opens on Saturday 1 July 2017 and closes on Saturday 30 September 2017. The HCPC will write to all clinical scientists at the beginning of July with information on how to renew.


To renew, registrants must complete a professional declaration and pay a renewal fee no later than midnight on Saturday 30 September 2017 to avoid being removed from the Register. The easiest and quickest way to renew is online via


A random sample of 2.5 per cent of the profession will also be selected to submit a continuing professional development (CPD) profile during this period. Those selected for audit will receive a separate letter after the renewal notices are sent out. More information, including sample profiles, activity types and video guidance, is available at


The fee is tax deductible, which means that registrants paying the standard 20 per cent tax rate can reclaim a 20 per cent refund from HMRC.


Sammuel Yemane, HCPC Registration Manager, commented:


“Our online system provides a quick and easy way to renew, and we want to encourage registrants to use this resource. We would advise all clinical scientists who wish to remain on the Register to renew as early as possible to ensure that you can continue to practice without disruption.”


Registrants can email with any queries on renewal or the CPD audit process Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.
