How do I get my registration back?

You need to apply to get your registration back

We call this restoration. You can only restore to the type of registration you last held. If you want to join the specialist or GP register, but you didn't hold this previously, you'll need to apply to do this separately.

Restoration applications usually take between one and three months so allow yourself plenty of time when applying.
