Kings View has successfully represented a HCPC client who practised under a protected title at a time when their registration has lapsed.

NB said:

“I am really glad that I chose Catherine Stock to advise and represent me in addressing a fitness to practice process after a lapse in my registration. She insightfully advised me on the best way to resolve the situation as quickly as possible based on her extensive experience with the HCPC.

 

“She predicted what would happen accurately, and I got the outcome I was looking for. She was reassuring, clear and an experienced guide during what was a very stressful time. I would definitely recommend her for any regulatory legal issues.”

This was an HCPC registration case where a registrant practised under a protected title at a time when their registration has lapsed.

Fitness to practise defence barrister, Catherine Stock, commented:

“Many registrants fail to ensure that they have robust mechanisms in place to make sure they re-register on time.

 

“Continuing to work under a protected title whilst unregistered can, in some cases, constitute a criminal offence and the HCPC will usually open a fitness to practise investigation.”

If you have let your registration lapse it is crucial that you obtain expert legal advice as to how to explain yourself to the HCPC and what steps to take.  It could mean the difference between successful registration or facing a fitness to Practise hearing.
