The College of Paramedics first introduced the Fitness to Practise Scheme in December 2018 to provide legal assistance for Full member undergoing an HCPC investigation.
For anyone going through a Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Fitness to Practise investigation, we understand how worrying and stressful a time it can be in your career. The College will consider applications to provide legal assistance to Full members undergoing an investigation by the HCPC when a member is undertaking their role responsibilities in accordance with their scope of practise and fulfils the criteria set out in the Fitness to Practise Policy.
Full members can access the 24-hour helpline in which you can discuss all matters relating to your Fitness to Practise investigation, prior to applying for assistance under the College’s Fitness to Practise Policy.
The terms of the scheme have recently undergone a review.
If you received formal allegations prior to 1st August 2023 please contact us on 01278 420014 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the scheme terms applicable to your application.
