Renew your registration to provide temporary and occasional medical services

Important information in the event the UK exits the EU without a deal

In the event that the UK exits the European Union without a deal on 29 March 2019 we’ll need to update our systems. We’ll need to close your application if you have started it on GMC Online but not submitted it by 11pm on 29 March. If you intend to submit an application you should consider doing so before this time.



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

  • are currently registered to provide medical services on a temporary and occasional basis
  • intend to continue to provide medical services on a temporary and occasional basis in the UK beyond their current registration expiry date.
