Want to know more about CPD?

Practitioners registered with RCCP have the potential to cause harm to patients.To reduce the risk of harm registrants are required to demonstrate that they are fit to practice, both in terms of their competency and conduct. RCCP has a responsibility to ensure that registrants maintain fitness to practice and continue to meet its standards.This is carried out through monitoring the continuing professional development activities that registrants undertake.This is important in supporting a culture of continuous learning and improvement, as well as ensuring the professionalism of registrants. 

RCCP audits 3% of CPD records every two years which is in line with the audit conducted by the Health & Care Professions Council.  The next audit is due to take place in 2019. RCCP will contact registrants who are randomly selected.  Failure to comply with RCCP CPD requirements will lead to a registrant's suspension from the Register.

For more information see the RCCP Policy for CPD.
