The Health and Social Care Professionals Council has 29 voluntary members and a Chair, appointed by the Minister for Health.
Each of the professions is represented on the Council. There are also members from the education sector, patient advocacy groups, the voluntary sector and representatives of public and private sector organisations who are concerned with health and social care.
The Council has a “lay majority”. This is internationally viewed as the best way of ensuring the public is protected.
Council meets on average 10 times throughout the year.
Terms of Office
The term of office for Council Members is 4 years. Half of the Council is replaced after 2 years; this ensures continuity of experience during the transition.
