HCPC Guidance on Social Media

HCPC Guidance on Social Media


HCPC have created this document to provide guidance to registrants who use social media. It explains how to use social media in a way which meets our standards.



Benefits of social media

Registrants have told us that using social media lets them:
  • develop and share their skills and knowledge;
  • help the public understand what they do;
  • network with other professionals nationally and internationally; and
  • raise the profile of their profession.


Most registrants who use social media already do so responsibly, in line with our standards, and without any difficulties at all. However, we know that registrants sometimes have questions or concerns about using social media because they want to make sure that they always meet our standards.

This guidance explains what our standards mean when using social media.
