Protecting the public and
guiding the professions


Registration with the HPCSA is a pre-requisite for professional practice and it is also a legal requirement to keep all personal details up to date at all times.


HPCSA registration comes to you
It is that time of the year where, the HPCSA is bringing registration to specific healthcare practitioners. The aim of this initiative is to ensure that you are registered on time to commence your internship, community service or even independent practice. You will have the opportunity to submit your application to the registration team at an area near you.  The team will process all compliant applications received and issue a registration pack upon receipt of the prescribed registration. Practitioners are encouraged to avoid  going to Pretoria as the registration teams will be attending to registration at the offsite offices. 
Please note that this registration drive focuses only on:
  • First time registration into different registers;
  • Registration of professional category changes;
  • Restorations;
  • Voluntary removals;
  • Registration of additional qualification / categories;
Services of specialist and foreign qualified registrations with be limited.

Benefits of registration:

  • Registration ensures that a practitioner receives professional status, inclusive of right to practice the profession that they are qualified for;
  • Be assured of self-regulation.
  • Be recognised as a competent practitioner who may command a reward for services rendered;
  • Receive guidance on best practices in healthcare delivery;
  • Contribute to high quality standards that promote the health of all South Africans;
  • Know that unethical/unprofessional practitioners will be brought to justice.

Practitioners will not be able to pay their annual fees for 2018/19 at the registration drive as the annual fees have not yet been promulgated.
