What we mean by being established in the UK

You are considered to be established in the UK if your intended practice in the UK falls into either of these categories: 

  • A permanent or fixed term contract or agreement to provide medical services for an indefinite period, or for more than one month in total over a year.
  • Any contract to provide medical services on a regular, frequent and continuous basis. Whether this is a permanent, fixed term or temporary contract.

This includes employment on a full or part-time basis. It applies whether you are directly employed, self-employed, or have an agreement to provide services.

If your intended practice falls into one of the categories above you will need to apply for full registration.
