State Registration and The Health Professions Council (HPC)
State registration was a mandatory requirement for employment within the National
Health Service (NHS) and also included a licence to administer local anaesthetics.
In 2005 the state registration system was replaced by a body called The Health Professions
Council (HPC) and all podiatrists must be registered with the HPC in order to practice
legally in the UK.
