NOTICE: Please be aware that due to COVID-19 we are currently operating at reduced staffing levels. We are working as rapidly as possible through applications and emails received over the Christmas and New year period. Thank you for your understanding.
The Health Practice Associates Council (HPAC)  is the UK's regulator for ambulance clinicians below the grade of paramedic. Working with stakeholders accross the United Kingdom we seek to regulate clinicians who meet our standards for the skills and training associated with their scope of practice, their behaviour and health, in order to protect the public. We support employers to safely streamline their recruitment process, as well as monitor the ongoing professional conduct of their HPAC registered staff.

We verify & audit all applications to the HPAC register. The HPAC is owned by the public interest, as a legally formed council registered and regulated as a not-for-profit community interest company.

The Care Quality Commission | NHS Safeguarding | National Police Chief's Council | Independent Ambulance Association recognise the Health Practice Associates Council register in supporting the safe recruitment of non-paramedic ambulance clinicians.

Up to 30,000 face to face pre-hospital patient contacts per day in the UK by ambulance staff all wearing green uniforms. Did you know only 50% are regulated by satute. Whilst the vast majority of clincians are safe, patient centred, extremely caring individuals, sadly as in all areas, some do pose a real risk to patient and staff safety.

All patients and staff deserve to be safe.
Support regulation compliance, reduce risk being passed on or inherited.

There is no good reason for the UK not to persue the same safeguarding standards as Ireland and the USA. Its time to catch up and regulate 100% of patient facing ambulance staff.
