How to revalidate during Covid-19

Revalidation is a key part of your professional life: it helps you to maintain safe and effective practice by supporting you to update your knowledge and develop new skills.

However, during the emergency we recognise that there are some factors that may make it difficult for you to complete your revalidation.

We've put together a document on how we'll support you to meet the requirements.

How to revalidate during Covid-19 (Cymraeg)

Our revalidation requirements don't apply to people on the Covid-19 temporary register.

Deadline extensions

If you don't need an extension and are able to revalidate on time, please do so.

If you need more time to complete your application, you can request an eight week extension through your NMC Online account once your revalidation application is open.

Paying your fee

If we grant you an extension to help you to meet the revalidation requirements, please pay your annual fee as normal before your original expiry date.

If you have a Direct Debit in place, your fee will be collected as normal.

If you want to set up a Direct Debit to spread the cost of your fee, you must do this before your original expiry date. You can't set up a Direct Debit within your extended revalidation period.

If you cancel your Direct Debit and enter your extended revalidation period, you will have to pay by card as you won't be able to set up a Direct Debit.
