HPC start consultation on proposed changes to the generic standards of proficiency

The Health Professions Council (UK) are consulting on proposed changes to the generic standards of proficiency. The standards of proficiency are the standards that we consider necessary for the safe and effective practice of professions they regulate. The changes are being proposed to ensure that the generic standards are applicable to all the professions they regulate. There are consultations on a number of changes to the structure and wording of the generic standards. They are proposing to reduce the number of generic standards to 15. Each of these generic standards would be overarching and applicable to all professions. The deadline for responses to the consultation is 20 October 2010.

The HPC are inviting all stakeholders with an interest to respond to this consultation. You can download a copy of the consultation document here.
