About Fitness to Practise (FTP) Department

Step into the heart of the action with the Fitness to Practice (FTP) department—a vital cornerstone of HCPC's commitment to public safety.

Here, a world of diverse opportunities awaits, ranging from Case Managers to Scheduling Officers, where each role plays a crucial part in ensuring the highest standards of professional practice.

Picture this: You're at the forefront of investigative excellence, responding when a concern is raised about an HCPC registrant. As an FTP team member, you're not just part of the largest team at HCPC, but you're a guardian of public trust and safety. Less than one percent of registrants undergo the fitness to practice process, highlighting the gravity of the work we do.

In the FTP department, we dive into cases that demand our attention—instances where trust has been broken, standards have been compromised, or where someone's fitness to practice is in question. It's a challenging terrain, but a necessary one to ensure that our profession maintains the highest ethical and performance standards.

Within the FTP department, various teams harmonize to deliver excellence:

  • Case Reception and Triage

  • Case Preparation and Conclusion

  • Investigations

  • FTP Operations

  • Health and Care Professions Tribunal Service (HCPTS)

These roles are not for the faint of heart—they are demanding, challenging, time-sensitive, and of significant importance. Whether you've just completed your legal qualifications or bring a passion for customer service, if you're driven by a commitment to public protection, this is your opportunity to shine.

Joining our talent network means stepping into a world where your skills and dedication meet a greater purpose. If the prospect of making a meaningful impact resonates with you, we invite you to explore the exciting opportunities within the FTP department. Your journey begins here—join our talent network and become an integral part of our aim to protecting the public.
