Notice Board

NOTICE FOR MEDICAL AND DENTAL PRACTITIONERS

Effective 20 January 2015, the HPCSA has suspended approximately 800 Medical and Dental Practitioners for non-payment of the HPCSA Annual Fees.

Under the Health Professions Act of 1974, registration with the HPCSA is a prerequisite to practice any of the professions under the jurisdiction of that Council and therefore practising without a HPCSA registration is a criminal offence in terms of the Act.

BHF would like to urge practitioners to contact the HPCSA to ensure that all details are up to date on 012 338-9300 or email info@hpcsa.co.za to ensure your details are active.

We would like to assure you of our ongoing commitment to serve you.
