How long will it take to process my request?

Five working days for our initial assessment

We aim to assess your declaration, documents and information within five working days. We can't assess your declaration until we have all the evidence we need. 

We’ll contact you if we need more information

Once we have received your documents and information we may ask for further evidence to support your declaration.

Sometimes we have to refer your request to a registration panel for advice. We will let you know if this applies to your request.

Granting your registration 

Once we've assessed your declaration and documents, and you've attended the identity check, we'll email you to confirm your entitlement to provide medical services in the UK on a temporary and occasional basis for 12 months. Your name will be listed on the medical register.

If you're not entitled, we'll explain the options available to you.
