We don’t offer a specific discount for doctors who retire. But you can reduce your fees if any of the following applies:
- your gross annual income is below £32,000 you can apply for income discount.
- you’re not working but you want to stay on the register you can give up your licence to practise.
- you no longer need or want to be on the register you can apply to give up your registration.
If you're no longer working but want to stay registered to prove your good standing, you can give up your licence to practise. This means you will pay less to stay on the register.
I'm not working and I don't want to stay on the register
If you no longer need your licence to practise and don't want to stay on the register, you can apply to give up your registration. This means we remove your name from the medical register and we won't charge you any fees.
