Transfer of Social Worker registration from the GSCC to the HCPC

On 1 August 2012 the regulation of social workers in England moved from the General Social Care Council (GSCC) to the renamed Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

From this date onwards the HCPC will regulate social workers against both its standard codes of conduct and ethics and against its standards of proficiency for social work. This is a change on the remit of the GSCC, which regulated conduct alone.

The HCPC will write to all social workers to ask them to renew their registration and pay a registration fee by the deadline of 30 November 2012.
