UNISON takes HCPC fees campaign to parliament
UNISON has taken its campaign against the proposed 18 per cent hike in registration fees by the HCPC to MPs and peers.
UNISON is continuing with its campaign against the proposed massive fees increase by the Health and Care Professions Council.
This week (8/2/19) UNISON sent out a parliamentary briefing to all MPs and peers and asked them to add their signatures to a letter to the HCPC chair asking the HCPC not to impose the fees hike.
The HCPC proposed an 18 per cent increase in its registration fees in a consultation in December 2018. UNISON held a survey of HCPC-registered members at the time: 99 per cent said they did not agree with the increase.
The HCPC has a council meeting next week where they will make a decision about the fees increase and UNISON will send the MPs’ letter to them before then.
UNISON has also sent a letter directly to all of the council members of the HCPC ahead of their decision-making meeting.
