By law, all doctors working in the UK must be registered with us. Doctors must pay a fee for their registration and an annual fee to remain on the register. 

We offer a range of payment options to spread the cost of the annual fee, including paying in quarterly or 10 monthly instalments. We give newly qualified doctors in their first five years of practice a discount on their annual fee. And we offer a 50% discount on the annual fee to doctors whose income is below a certain threshold.
