Checks for employers

Checks employers can make on the register

Organisations that employ or contract doctors can use the medical register to: 

  • make sure a doctor's registration status is suitable for the work they will do
  • make an initial check of the doctor's identity
  • see if there are any conditions, warnings or restrictions on their registration.

Further checks for employers

There are other pre-employment and post-employment checks that employers should make which won't be available on the medical register. For more information see our dedicated information service for employers.
