As a GP working, or planning to work, in the UK, you need to go through a three-stage process.
Step 1 - join the GMC's GP register
- If you are applying to work as a GP (general practitioner or family physician) in the UK, as well as being licensed by the GMC, you'll also need to be on the GMC's GP Register.
- About the GMC GP register
Step 2 - join one of the four UK Performers Lists
- If you you're not already working, state your “intent to work” on your performers list application, outlining roughly how many sessions a week you plan to work from a particular date.
Step 3 - join the NHS appraisal process
- Your Area Team will assign you to a 'designated body', who'll oversee your appraisal and subsequent revalidation.
