Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact notice: Currently all HPA services are fully operational with some delays to processes.

Our register aims to capture clinicians who meet our standards for the skills and training associated to their scope of practice, their behaviour and health.



Health Practice Associates Council CIC is a legally recognised council which is owned by the public and registered with Companies House as a nonprofit Community Interest Company. The register was launched in 2015 to provide the UK with a non-statutory regulator for non-paramedic ambulance clinicians, roughly 50% of all ambulance staff. The register was developed in collaboration with seven NHS Ambulance Trusts, as well as with input from key voluntary and independent ambulance services. As it has progressed we have welcomed on board registrants from different sectors of the health economy such as Health Care Assistants, Phlebotomists and more. As a regulator, the HPA Council is set up to protect the public and support clinicians throughout their professional development. 


CQC, NPCC and IAA recognise the Health Practice Associates Council register in supporting the safe recruitment of non-paramedic ambulance clinicians.
