Specialist or GP applications

There are different types of registration applications available to specialists and general practitioners (GPs) based on their knowledge, skills and experience. Doctors only need to apply for specialist registration or GP registration, if they want to practise as substantive, honorary or fixed term consultant, or as a GP in the UK health services.

In order to be granted specialist or GP registration doctors must hold full registration with a licence to practise at the point specialist/GP registration is awarded.
