Its audit time again....


April is here and May will soon be on us. May sees the biennial renewal of HCPC registration for podiatrists & chiropodists. It’s during this renewal period that 2.5% of podiatrists will be randomly selected by the Health & Care Professions Council to submit a portfolio of evidence as evidence that demonstrates in the last two years you have:


· Undertaken CPD activities on a regular basis.

· Kept a record of these activities.

· Carried out different kinds of learning activities.

· Undertaken activities that might improve your practice and benefit your service user


(HCPC 2022 Website)




Remember its not the number of hours of CPD that count but the quality of the CPD.


Just a reminder, if you are a regular visitor to the foot expert website that any activities you undertake here can potentially count as CPD, and been included in your CPD portfolio. This maybe reflecting on a blog or what you have learned from a webinar or from a dermoscopy course, for example. Even conversations or communications can count as CPD. In addition, there are a range of other related activities that are eligible as CPD. These can be found on the HCPC website:
