HCPC registration resources
IBMS resources to support your HCPC registration, renewal, CPD and Fitness to Practice
HCPC Indemnity Insurance requirements
All biomedical scientists registered with the HCPC are required to have professional indemnity insurance in place as a condition of their registration with the HCPC.
In response to these changes, the IBMS has improved its Medical Malpractice Insurance cover for all IBMS members and ensure our cover reflects HCPC requirements.
Find out more on our Group Medical Malpractice Insurance page.
Our professional guidance including our Code of Conduct and Guide to Good Professional Practice reflect HCPC standards and support you in meeting them.
The IBMS CPD scheme enables you to show you have met HCPC CPD standards by providing a framework for recording your CPD activity.
Our new CPD ePortfolio is designed so that you can easily download activities recorded in your ePortfolio in pdf and csv format to use as evidence for your HCPC CPD audit.
The categories are used in the IBMS CPD scheme reflect HCPC CPD categories, which makes it easier for you to use activities recorded in your IBMS CPD ePortfolio as evidence that you have met HCPC CPD standards.
We have included headings under the reflective notes section for each CPD activity you record to enable you to show how your CPD meets the HCPC standards, including:
• What learning did you undertake?
• Explain what you learned or achieved
• How have you applied this in your day-to-day practice?
• How could this benefit the service user?
