How do I send my documents?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – sending your documents

Our offices are closed at the moment so please don’t send your documents by post.

When you apply, we’ll tell you what information to send electronically. 


When you’ve submitted your application, we’ll email you a list of the documents that we need to see original versions of.

You can post your documents to us or make an appointment to bring them to our offices in Manchester or London.

Post your documents to:

Registration Support team (IMG)
General Medical Council
3 Hardman Street
M3 3AW

To make an appointment, log in to GMC Online and choose My Appointments, then New Appointment or call us on 0161 923 6602.

When should I send my documents?

You must send your documents within 28 days of our email.

If we don't hear from you within 28 days, we'll close your application and send you a refund, less our scrutiny fee. Find out more about our current fees.

You'll need to apply again if you still want to register with us. 

What happens after Ive sent my documents?

Once we get your documents, we’ll make a full assessment of your application. We’ll contact you if we need more evidence or information to support your application.

Remember that we can't assess your application until you've sent your documents.
