Service update: Registration
Processing UK and readmission applications is a priority for us. We will strive to achieve our normal processing times, however, we are subject to limited access to incoming post, so please bear with us.
We are adapting our ways of working and as such are allowing applications for registration to be sent to us by email.
Please read the guidance very carefully before sending us your application and take note of the new information included in the application download pack. See here for more information on applying to the Register.
We are working hard to achieve our normal processing times. However, we are subject to limited access to incoming post and this will affect those times. Incoming applications may be subject to delay and we will advise applicants accordingly.
Registrants will understandably be concerned about how they can keep up to date with CPD or have time to submit profiles if chosen for audit at this time.
Individuals should comply with their CPD obligations, where time allows and if it is possible to do so.
Given the circumstances, our Council had taken the decision to cancel the audit process for physiotherapists and arts therapists. We also did not go ahead with CPD audits for dietitians, chiropodists / podiatrists and hearing aid dispensers.
If you are not one of the above professions and have a previous CPD audit which is outstanding that you would like to query, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note our CPD audits resumed on September 1 2020 with operating department practitioners, you can find more information as well as tips for completing your audit here.
We will continue with our planned renewal timelines, but with extra flexibility understanding the pressures our registrants will be under.
We have extended the renewal deadlines for the following professions:
- Art Therapists: deadline now extended to 30 June 2020
- Dietitians: deadline now extended to 31 July 2020
- Chiropodists / podiatrists: deadline now extended to 31 August 2020
- Hearing aid dispensers: deadline now extended to 31 August 2020
We have also written to those select registrants to confirm this in writing.
