Each registrant is required to renew their registration on an annual basis. For specialty registrars, the annual renewal date is 1st July each year. This requirement comprises of 2 components:
- Signed and completed annual declaration form
- Payment of annual renewal fee
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.
- Payment of renewal fees can be made either by:
|Direct Debit collection – collected on the 1st July. 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
|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 his 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 and to complete an instalment agreement form, which must be completed each year that you make payment in instalments.
You can now claim tax relief on your annual renewal fees from the 6th April 2015. For more information, please click here
2. Complete and sign a satisfactory declaration form
A copy of the declaration form is stored within your documents in your log-in area. You must answer all 12 questions and sign the form using a hand-written or an electronic signature. UKPHR cannot accept typed in names. All declaration forms should be posted or e-mailed back to UKPHR.
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 the 1st July or your registration status will automatically be reverted to ‘lapsed’ and your name will no longer be visible on our publically viewable register.
- You are provided 15 working days to complete the requirements and within this time, UKPHR staff are able to revert your status to ‘current’ with no additional fee. A record of lapse will be maintained and on any second occasion (within a 5-year registration period) that this may occur on, an restoration application fee as prescribed by UKPHR will be charged for the Registrar to consider your application for restoration.
- If you 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.
- After 15 working days you will have to apply to restore your status back on the register by submitting an application directly to UKPHR’s Registrar, who ultimately has the discretion to restore your ‘current’ status. A restoration application fee in addition to payment of renewal fees in arrears will apply. For more information on how to apply for restoration, please click here.
Although re-registration applies for all registrants, it is assumed that specialty registrars will not be on the register under this category for beyond 5-years and hence are not expected to re-register.
UKPHR will not impose a requirement in respect of CPD on registrants participating in Specialty Training, believing that the standard of CPD it requires for specialist registrants is fulfilled by participation in the Specialty Training Programme. UKPHR reserves the right to impose a CPD requirement on a registrant who takes time out from the Specialty Training Programme.
