UNISON survey on Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) fees

UNISON survey on Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) fees

We are currently conducting a short survey of our science, therapies, technical and ambulance members to find out your views on the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) proposal to increase its annual registration fee by a massive 18%. The proposals are contained within a new consultation and would see the annual registration fee rise from £90 to £106, if adopted.
 
The increase will affect all 16 professions regulated by HCPC and would take effect from October 2019. The proposed hike comes only three years after the controversial 12.5% rise in 2015 which saw fees increase from £80 to £90, despite a 5% increase the previous year. 
 
We will use the results from this survey to help formulate UNISON’s response to the consultation and to inform our future campaign work around this issue.
 
Please respond by no later than Sunday 9 December.

Thank you for taking the time out to participate in the survey.
 
More information on the consultation including more detailed proposals can be found here.
