If not all registered Podiatrists have  completed an approved course, who are the others on the HPC register?

In order to regulate the majority of people working as Chiropodists  / Podiatrists the HPC allowed onto the register anyone who applies for HPC registration and who meets a minimum set of requirements, through a  process known as grandparenting. In plain English, this means that someone who has completed less than an approved 3 year course  but who has been working privately as an unregistered Podiatrist for at least  three years had a chance to become registered and would then be regulated. These Health Professionals are not obliged to declare the level of training they have completed, but by law must tell you truthfully when asked. Firstly ask if they are a HPC registered Podiatrist, it is a criminal offense to falsely claim they are. If they are registered you can further ask if they have a degree or a three year diploma in podiatry (BSc or DPodM), It is a breech of the HPC regulations to falsely claim they have.
