Healthcare Professionals Crossing Borders (HPCB) is an informal partnership of professional healthcare regulators from within Europe that works collaboratively on a range of regulatory issues.
The purpose is to contribute to patient safety in Europe through the effective regulatory collaboration in the context of cross-border healthcare and free movement of healthcare professionals.
Following its 10th network conference in London on 28 October, the HPCB launched a fitness to practise mapping survey. The survey aims to map the fitness to practise sanctions currently applied across Europe and will investigate how these are reflected in the new alert mechanism. Healthcare regulators across Europe are urged to respond.
