Reapplying for, and Restoring, Membership
Practitioners who for any reason have lapsed their registration for a period of less than 2 years can reapply without formal (re)application subject to:
- being able to satisfy the requirements and commitments outlined above
- no upheld complaint or sanction having been imposed by The Register
- no upheld complaint or sanction having been imposed by another accredited register
Practitioners who for any reason have lapsed their registration for a period more than 2 years would need to reapply for membership. They will need to make clear that satisfactorily confirmed Practitioner retraining will have been undertaken before application, as follows:
- 2 to 5 years – 20 hours
- Over 5 years – 35 hours
These conditions also apply to those who for whatever reason have not worked as a Practitioner post qualification.
This reapplication framework only covers the practices of this Register. Membership of other accredited registers will only be considered in line with Practitioners active memberships at the time of reapplication.
Practitioners who for reasons of the application of sanction (under this or any other accredited register) have been removed from The Register may apply to have their registration restored. These will be considered on a case-by-case basis the Professional Conduct Review Committee. In such cases the decision of the committee will be final.
