How to change your name or address
If your registration lapses, you cannot legally work as a nurse or midwife. It is vital that we have your correct contact details so we can let you know when your registration is due to be renewed.
Change of address
- NMC Pin
- full name
- previous address
- new address.
Change of name
You need to practise in the same name as we hold for you on our register. This helps employers and the public find the correct information they need about your eligibility to practise.
- NMC Pin
- previous name and title
- new name and title
- previous signature and new signature
- a copy of the official document confirming the name change (for example, marriage certificate or deed of name change certificate).
Please note that we do not accept passports or drivers’ licences. Please do not send any original documents as we are unable to return them. Once your name has been changed, we will post you a new copy of your statement of entry.
