Readmission - frequently asked questions

  • An updating period is number of days in which you update your skills and knowledge.

    The application forms ask for a summary of the activities that you have undertaken in this period, including the number of days spent on each area. It will need to be countersigned by a health and care professional from your part of the register to confirm that the information is correct.

    If you have been in practice outside of the UK we also need you to provide us with some additional information about where you have been working and whether you were registered elsewhere. If this is the case, we will request it via email.

    More information about updating periods


  • We ask applicants for this information so we can tell if:

    • they are who they say they are;
    • they meet our standards; and
    • we can contact them if we need to.

    You may also be asked to provide supporting information, for example in the case of international applications where a qualification isn’t recognised. If this is the case we will contact you via email.

  • If your application is successful, the Register will be immediately updated and reflect the addition by showing your details.

    This is the best way to check you are registered and for your employer to verify your registration status.

  • Unsuccessful applications

    If your application is unsuccessful, you may have grounds to appeal the decision. Go to appeals to begin this process.
