Refusal of licence restoration appeals

This section is to help doctors who wish to appeal our decision to refuse their application to restore their licence to practise.

Appeals are handled by the GMC Appeals team. They are independent of the registration process and aim to provide an impartial and fair service.

If you have made an application for registration with a licence to practise, please see our registration appeals guidance.

If you have made an application for entry onto the Specialist Register or GP Register through a CCT, CESR, or CEGPR, please see our specialist and GP registration appeals guidance.
