REGISTRATION FEES AT THE HEALTH AND CARE PROFESSIONS COUNCIL
EDM #2069
Tabled 12 February 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that the Health and Care Professions Council plans to increase its registration fees by 18 per cent from October 2019; believes that this increase is effectively a tax on practicing, as those who are regulated by the HCPC must pay this annual fee in order to continue doing their jobs; notes that this affects a wide range of staff working in 15 health and care professions across the UK, including paramedics, occupation therapists, operating department practitioners, physiotherapists, radiographers, dieticians, chiropodists, podiatrists, orthoptists, clinical scientists, and speech and language therapists; regrets that such an increase will mean HCPC fees rising by 40 per cent since 2014, outstripping inflation as well as the smaller pay increases that health and care staff have had across this period; considers such an increase to be excessive and unreasonable, with further concerns about the lack of public scrutiny around such a large rise in fees; and therefore calls on the HSPC to reconsider this increase as a matter of urgency.
