If a complaint is made to the HCPC about your Fitness to Practise whilst on the temporary register, and this meets the HCPC Triage test, then you would simply be removed from the Temporary Register. The HCPC have recently released a draft document ‘Statement of Approach to Fitness to Practise During Covid-19’, stating “Any concern we receive about a registrant on the COVID-19 temporary or student registers may be taken into account should that registrant apply for permanent registration with the HCPC in future”. This is something to seriously consider before you take on the role and responsibilities of a temporary registered paramedic.
As a student member of the College of Paramedics, you already have access to our specialist legal team in the event that you encounter any difficulty in obtaining permanent registration in the future, on the basis of any fitness to practise concerns whilst you were a student (terms and conditions apply).
