Your Chiropodist / Podiatrist should be HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) registered. This registration scheme has replaced the State Registration scheme and its purpose is to regulate the health professionals registered with them. Thirteen professions are registered of which Podiatry is one. The HCPC only registers people who meet the standards for their professional skills and behaviour. This, in turn, protects the health and wellbeing of people who use the Chiropody / Podiatry service.
