Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA)

Founded for Public protection and Professional guidance

The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA or the Council) is a statutory body, established in terms of the Health Professions Act No. 56 of 1974. The Council, together with the twelve Professional Boards that operate under its jurisdiction, is committed to:
-  Promoting the health of South Africa’s population, 
-  Determining standards of professional education and training, and 
-  Setting and maintaining fair standards of professional practice.

An entirely autonomous organisation, HPCSA does not receive grants or subsidies from government or any other source, and is funded entirely by the health care professions it represents.
Each of the professions registered with Council is further represented by one of twelve professional boards, the boards and Council being interactive entities.

Good health is your right.

All people have the right to good health and quality health care.

The first step to ensuring that you receive the quality of health care services to which you are entitled, is knowing what your rights are
