2. Renewing your registration annually
Each registrant is required to renew their registration on an annual basis.
For specialists and specialty registrars, the annual renewal date is 1st July each year and for practitioners, the annual renewal date is the same date as their initial registration.
You will be sent an annual renewal invoice prior to your due date, prompting you to begin to complete the requirements of your annual renewal. Click here to view the latest renewal fees.
This requirement comprises of 2 components:
|Direct Debit collection – collected at the end of your renewal month. You can check to see if you have a Direct Debit set-up with UKPHR by logging in to your area. If you do not but would like to set a Direct Debit, please complete and return the mandate form. If you do not inform UKPHR that you would like to pay via an alternative method for a particular year, we will proceed to collect payment via previously received instructions. Please note that Direct Debit collections can only be made on an annual basis.|
|Cheque – made payable to PUBLIC HEALTH REGISTER|
|BACS transfer – using the details below
Bank: Lloyds Bank
Account name: Public Health Register
Account number: 00875203
|Using your card online – through the log-in area you can pay via PayPal using your Debit or Credit Card. You can alter the total to pay in instalments.|
|Standing Order – you can set this up through your Bank.|
You have the option to pay your renewal fees through instalments using your card online or by Standing Order throughout your renewal year but it is essential that one instalment is made before your renewal is due and the full balance is paid off before your next renewal date. It will be the registrants responsibility to complete payment and UKPHR will not issue any reminders. You must first contact UKPHR at email@example.com to notify us of this payment plan. Both initial payment and a completed instalment agreement form must be received in order to satisfy this component.
You can now claim tax relief on your annual renewal fees from the 6th April 2015.
The declaration form is now available to be completed online. The link will be sent in your initial email inviting you to renew.
It is only when UKPHR receives a satisfactory declaration form and payment of fees that your registration will be renewed for a further year. This must be completed before your annual renewal date or your registration status will automatically be reverted to ‘lapsed’ and your name will no longer be visible on our publically viewable register.
Not renewed on time?
A record of lapse will be maintained when a registrant does not renew on time.
- If this is the first time registration has lapsed in a 5 year registration cycle:
Registrants are provided 15 working days to complete the requirements and within this time, UKPHR staff are able to revert registration status to ‘current’ with no additional fee. Post 15 working days, registrants are expected to apply for restoration to the Register via an application directly to the Registrar, which will incur an one-off restoration fee. If registrants do not respond to the opportunity to be restored to the register within 15 working days of the renewal date UKPHR will notify any current employer known to UKPHR of the lapse in registration and you will be notified of any such notification.
- On any second occasion registration lapses in a 5 year registration cycle:
Registrants will not be provided with 15 working days to complete the requirements. UKPHR will notify any current employer known to UKPHR of the lapse in registration and you will be notified of any such notification. To restore registration status to ‘current’, registrants are expected to apply for restoration to the Register via an application directly to the Registrar, which will incur an one-off restoration fee.
