Here is an important reminder from the Health Professions Council for all concerned physiotherapists.
It has been encouraging to see the number of health professionals lapsing decrease since the fi rst round of registration renewals in 2003. We are committed to working towards further reducing the number of registrants who fi nd their registration has lapsed, but we need health professionals to work with us to ensure that this happens.
Physiotherapists will be sent a registration renewal form at the beginning of February 2008. This document must be signed
and returned to us by 30 April 2008 with a payment (unless a direct debit instruction is in place).
There are several ways in which you can make sure your name stays on the HPC Register.
• Call the HPC Registration Department now if you have changed your home address.
• Send your renewal form (and payment) to us well before the deadline.
• Sign up to this newsletter by emailing email@example.com
• After you have sent us your renewal form, check the Register online via our website (www.hpc-uk.org) to ensure that you are showing as registered for the next two-year registration cycle.
The UK Registration team can be contacted Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm on our lo-call number 0845 3004 472 (if calling from within the UK) or +44 (0)20 7840 9802.
