Combined programme application – CESR CP
This guide is for doctors looking to join the Specialist or GP Registers and have trained in non-approved and approved training programmes.
This applies to you if you have either trained in non-approved post or you entered an approved training post at a later starting point and completed the rest of the programme and gained the remaining competencies.
Please note, if you want to take up a consultant posts in the NHS (other than as a locum consultant) you must be on our Specialist Register. And if you want to work as a GP in the UK health services (other than in a training post) you must be on our GP Register.
Important information for doctors intending to work as a GP in the UK
To start work as a GP in the UK, you'll need to complete a number of processes. Some of these are handled by organisations other than the GMC.
You must read our General Practice in the UK page for information about applying to join a Performers List and Induction and Returner schemes.
These are extra requirements for you to work as a GP in the UK.
