Health and character

Last Updated 26/05/2021

You must provide a health and character declaration.

You must declare if you have been charged, convicted of any criminal offence (including a conditional discharge) or issued with a formal caution.

You also need to declare if you have been subject to any adverse determination that your fitness to practise is impaired by a professional or regulatory body (including those responsible for regulating or licensing a health and social care profession).

If you've declared a caution or conviction to us and we've already considered this, you do not need to declare this to us again in future revalidation applications.

Meeting the requirements

Your health and character is central to the Code. This requirement asks you to declare that your health and character enables you to practise safely and effectively.

You don't need to collect evidence to prove you meet this requirement – you just need to complete the declarations when making your application.

You may find our guidance on how we consider health and character issues useful.

We have lots of resources to help you get the best from revalidation.
