Thank you for your interest in registering for organisation access to the HPAC service platform, please note this level of access is privileged and carries strict rules relating to the responsible use of associated registrants' data which you can read about in our terms and conditions. In line with GDPR you will only be able to view enhanced detail of a registrant's profile if the registrant specifically accepts your organisation's association request.
We also need revenue to function, this is primarily derived in part from registration fees and organisation access fees. We have 4 Bands, based on self-declared industry-related turnover.
|Band||Turnover||Annual Access Fee|
|Band A||up to £500k||£488|
|Band B||£500k – £2m||£828|
|Band C||£2m – £5m||£1,465|
|Band D||£5m plus||£2,440|
Your access fees will be on a rolling 12-month period from the date of your organisation's registration. The above amounts are eligible for a 15% discount if paid annually or can be spread out over a 12-month payment plan at the full price.
If you are interested in being a member of the Health Practice Associates organisation portal and working with us to influence and shape the future provision of industry-related services then please complete and submit the online application form. You can also purchase volume licences if you wish to sponsor staff members, find out more via this link.
All our organisation members who provide medical services agree to phase all their non-paramedic clinical staff (not registered with a statutory regulator) onto the HPAC register, this provides assurance to the public, service users and other stakeholders that your staff meet the HPAC standards.
Once registered the system will give you the ability to link with registrants and allow you detailed access to associated registrants' qualifications, DBS information, outstanding action plans, upheld or live safeguarding concerns and more. It immediately alerts your organisation when a new safeguarding concern is raised by a third party with whom they are associated to. This includes NHS Trusts, Independent, Voluntary and law enforcement organisations. By being a member of the platform you will form part of the national safeguarding hub thereby strengthening public safety. Additionally, insurance companies will look favourably on membership with the HPAC as it reduces both your's and their's exposure to liability through real-time verified safeguarding alerts. Membership is tax-deductible and adds to your portfolio of due diligence evidence.
The portal provides your organisation with the ability to record detailed incident, action and activity history per associated registrant on a confidential record only viewable by your HR department. It provides your Team Leaders with an integrated action plan tool which prompts managers and registrants when due dates pass and tracks the completion of action plans for your compliance records. The system will also allow you to upload and cascade your organisation's policies and procedures to associated registrants and track their read rate by individual declarations of having read each document allowing your HR team to track the level of compliance.
This strengthens the industry and provides many benefits which organisations find valuable in business continuation and stakeholder engagement.
