Rasing a Concern about an HCPC Education Provider: As well as approving and monitoring approved programmes, the HCPC also listens to concerns that anyone might have about them. Anyone can raise a concern about an approved programme of study. The HCPC normally expect someone to have completed an education provider's informal and formal internal complaints processes before raising a concern with them.
