Online renewal and payment portal

The Health Professions Council of South Africa (Council) is committed to improving efficiency when serving practitioners. In the third quarter of the 2016/17 financial year, Council engaged a systems development company to develop an online renewal and fee payment portal which we believe is in line with our strategic objective of improving performance and functionality. That system is ready and undergoing stress-testing. We are expecting to go live from 1 March 2017. System capabilities include the following:

  • Practitioners will be able to go through the renewal process online;
  • Practitioners will make annual fee payments and other outstanding amounts, as invoiced, online;
  • Practitioners will be able to download an electronic practitioner card including an encrypted QR code, which when scanned, will reveal much more information about the practitioner than is currently the case, with real-time validation;
  • Practitioners who prefer the printed format will be able to print their HPCSA registration details from the system;
  • Practitioners will be able to view, verify and confirm, or update their contact details, as they renew their membership, or at any time through this portal;
  • The portal allows the practitioner to view their qualification(s) and registration details, and where required, send a service request for queries.
