The HPA is a non profit organisation owned by the public developed in collaboration with the NHS, voluntary and independent ambulance sectors to provide the UK with a register for non paramedic ambulance staff as well as other clinicians who are not required by law to be regulated. As a regulator the HPA is set up to protect the public and support clinicians in their professional development.

Examples of who we regulate

First Aiders
Community First Responders

Ambulance Care Assistants / Health Care Assistants / Phlebotomists

Emergency Care Assistants / Emergency Care Support Workers / Blue Light Driving Instructors

Ambulance Technicians (IHCD equivalent or higher) / Associate Ambulance Practitioners

This list is not exhaustive and other non-paramedic grades are captured by the register

When you register you will join hundreds of members who are already voluntarily accountable to the Health Practice Associates Council. The council will regulate your professional conduct as a clinician in accordance with the HPA's code of conduct, performance and ethics.

Once the grade you have applied for has been verified by our registration team you will be issued with a National ID card which uses sophisticated security features to prevent forgery and prove identity. Your online profile will reflect your registration date, your grade, recognised blue light drving entitlements (if any) and your current status on the public register.
