Winning together

Moving to the UK

To do clinical practice in the UK you must  hold registration with a licence to practise. By holding a licence you are allowed to prescribe medicine and treat patients. If you hold a licence then you also must show GMC (General medical council) that  your clinical knowledge and skills are up to date through different parameters by regular checks on your practice, known as revalidation. All the doctors who practice in the UK need to follow the principles and standards of Good medical practice. Doctors must be clear whether they are licensed, hold registration only, or neither. It is a criminal offence in the UK for a doctor to give the impression they hold registration or a licence, if they don’t.

There are different pathways if you want to start working in the NHS and persue your medical career in the UK  depending on your qualification, experience and your citizenship status.

MedicToUK will help you to find out your appropriate option and will support you throughout your journey to reach your aimed destination.

CESR (Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration):

It is a route to specialist registration for doctors who have not completed a GMC approved run-through training programme but who are able to demonstrate that their specialist training, qualifications, and experience are equivalent to the requirements for Certification of completion of training (CCT). CESR applications are assessed based on documentary evidence only. For further information please visit the official CESR website.

It is an extremely lengthy and laborious process which will require a lot of documentation, patience, and perseverance.
