Specialist or GP applications

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