You only need to apply for restoration if you have been removed or struck off by a fitness to practise panel.

In order to be restored to our register you must be able to satisfy the restoration hearing panel that it can properly and safely do so.

Please note restoration is not the same as readmission.

If your registration has simply lapsed and there are no fitness to practise sanctions on your registration, you can apply for readmission.

Find out more about readmission to the register.
