Guide for doctors granted temporary registration

The UK government asked us to give temporary emergency registration and/or licence to suitable people, as part of the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.In September 2023, it was confirmed that this form of registration will close at the end of March 2024. If you still hold temporary emergency registration or licence, we’ll need to remove it before this date. 

This guide explains how we’ll do this and what your options are if you want to practise in the UK after March 2024.
