Latest news flash from HPC: 68,000 social workers still to renew
This week HPC are writing to over 68,000 social workers in England who have not renewed their HCPC registration. We are very concerned at this high number and the detrimental consequence of social workers lapsing off the Register to registrants, employers and service users. Chief Executive and Registrar Marc Seale has made the following comment.
'We are concerned at the high numbers of social workers who have yet to renew their HCPC registration. We encourage all our registrants to renew before the deadline to prevent the lengthy re-admittance process which follows lapsing off the Register.The consequences of social workers lapsing off the Register are detrimental and considerable to the registrant, employer and service user and ultimately result in a risk to public safety.
For this reason we urge all social workers to renew their registration immediately'.
