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.

Please scan and email copies of these documents and application form as one PDF or zip file to:

If you cannot email them, please post them to:
General Medical Council, Registration Support Team (IMG), 3 Hardman Street, Manchester M3 3AW

Do not send any of your original documents through the post unless we request it.

When should I send my documents?

You must send scanned copies of 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 I’ve 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 email us your documents.
