From 1st April 2015, the Health and Care Professions Council’s (‘HCPC’s’) rules will be amended to:

  • Require registrants to notify the HCPC if their indemnity cover/insurance ceases for any reason; and
  • Give the HCPC the power to require the production of evidence that indemnity arrangements are in place.

These rule changes have been implemented to ensure compliance with the requirement that all practising healthcare professionals must hold an insurance or indemnity arrangement as a condition of their registration.
