When will I get my full registration?

If you don't have any fitness to practise issues

When we receive your certificate of experience, as long as there are no outstanding fitness to practise issues, we will grant your full registration from the day after you are due to complete your F1 programme.

We'll email you to let you know. You’ll also get a letter and a certificate in the post, which will confirm your registration start date.

If you have a fitness to practise issue 

If you have declared a fitness to practise issue, we’ll assess this as quickly as possible – usually within five working days. If we can't approve your application, we’ll tell you why.

How can I check my registration?

You can check your registration status on the medical register. Use your name or GMC reference number to start the search.
