Guide on completing the declaration of fitness to practise

Declaring your fitness to practise 

As part of an application to join, leave or re-join the register, you must complete a declaration of fitness to practise.

These declarations are valid for three months and should be no older than that when we approve and grant your application. If the declarations were completed more than three months ago we will ask you to complete new declarations.

Declaring health matters

To help you decide if there is anything you need to tell us about your physical or mental health please read our guide on fitness to practise and health matters.

Why read this guide?
To understand what to expect when you complete our fitness to practise declaration.
