Return to practice

The Return to Practice process enables you to re-register with the HCPC after a period of time away from your profession. There are many reasons why you may not have practiced such as caring/parental responsibilities, illness, travel or other career routes.   We value the skills you have gained whilst you have been away and look forward to your return.

Different requirements apply depending on how long you have been out of professional practice. 

NHS Careers Scotland has all the information you need about the steps to re-registration: including the links to the HCPC who manage the final step.

Now is the time to return and help to deliver safe and effective care for the people of Scotland.
