Declaring your intention to provide temporary and occasional medical services

This guide is for doctors who are established in a European state other than the UK and:

  • want to make a declaration to provide medical services on a temporary and occasional basis in the UK

  • are not currently registered to provide medical services on a temporary and occasional basis.

We recommend you make your declaration three months before you plan to start work. This is in case we need you to give us more evidence, which can take time to assess.

If you want to renew an existing entitlement, you should follow this guide to renewing temporary and occasional medical services.
