Appeals Procedure

Each Registration Board is responsible for:

  • the registration of applicants, and;
  • the recognition of international qualifications from the relevant professions.

An applicant has a right of appeal to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council (Council) from decisions made by Registration Boards on registration and recognition applications. Council has appointed an Appeals Committee to hear and determine appeals on its behalf.

To make an appeal, please read the Appeals Procedure in full.

Update June 2022:

Please note that due to the high volume of appeals there is currently a delay in the processing of appeals. All appeals are being dealt with in the order in which they are received and we are working to minimise delays.

You must then complete the Appeal Form to set out all the information you wish Council to consider.

Please email your Appeal Form to lf you are attaching documentation with your Appeal Form, please ensure that your email does not exceed 15MB in size. You may submit further emails containing additional documentation if it is necessary to do so, but no email should exceed 15MB.

Please pay the appeal fee using our online system.
