CPD Activity

In this section, please enter the number of hours of Clinical and General CPD hours you completed between 01 January and 31 December 2021.

If you were registered under the Deferred or NHS Only registration types in 2021, you will not be subject to our CPD requirements for 2021 – please enter ‘0’ in each box if you are in either of these categories.

If you are choosing to renew your membership as a Deferred Registrant, you may enter ‘0’ in the two fields asking for CPD. You can choose to write in the ‘I need to explain my situation‘ click box (you need to click on the little box to the left to open it) and write here that you were ‘Deferred for 2021 and therefore do not need to enter hours‘. Once this has been entered, you will be able to continue the form.

Note: If you are registering under the NHS Only registration type this year, you will from this year onwards (Jan-Dec 2022) be subject to our CPD requirements, not just your NHS employer’s.

Newly registered

If you registered with the BPC for the first time during 2021, your CPD hours requirement will be measured on a pro-rata basis in relation to the time of year you joined us. Example: If you first joined us on July 1st 2021, the requirement would be 7.5 hours for Clinical CPD and 7.5 hours for General CPD. Each month of membership requires pro-rated 1.25 hours of CPD.

For more information on CPD, please click here.

Explain your situation

If you have been unable to complete the required CPD hours for 2021, click on ‘I need to explain my situation‘. A textbook should appear – please detail why you were unable to meet your Clinical and/or General CPD requirements for 2021 here.
