  • photographic ID
  • a copy of your UK General Medical Council (GMC) certificate of registration
  • £150 registration fee

Cheques should made payable to ‘Treasurer of the States’.

Revalidating your General Medical Council (GMC) licence​​

Each doctor will be assigned a local responsible officer who will make a recommendation to the GMC.

Responsible officers will be assigned according to the following classes:

  • general practitioners
  • doctors employed by Health a​and Social Services Department
  • independent medical practitioners
  • medical practitioners with a prescribed UK connection

If you practise partly in Jersey

If you practise partly in Jersey but have a connection with a UK designated body, your UK responsible officer will make the revalidation recommendation to the GMC.

A Jersey responsible officer will be assigned to you but their responsibilities will be limited to the investigation of any ‘fitness to practise’ issues that might occur while you’re working in Jersey.

What the law requires

The law requires all doctors or medical practitioners to:

  • hold a current licence to practise with the GMC
  • provide more detailed information about qualifications, employment details and anything that may be relevant about your ability to practise
  • verify any personal information held about you regularly. If you don’t respond to a request for verification, your name will be removed from the register. It's important to inform us of any changes to your contact details
