Returning to the register
Information on rejoining the register after a break
To rejoin our register after a break, you will need to meet some requirements. We will ask you to declare that you have completed 750 hours of registered practice in the previous five years and 35 hours of learning activity in the previous three years. Practice can include supervisory, teaching, research and managerial roles as well as providing direct patient care. However, practice hours completed while you were lapsed or not registered, for example if you were working as a health care assistant, cannot be counted towards the practice requirement.
Applications for re-admission from registrants who are found to have been working will be referred to the Registrar's Advisory Group for consideration
If you meet these requirements, call us on 020 7333 9333 and ask for an application pack, or contact us.

Return to practice
If you have not completed the required number of practice hours, you will have to complete an approved return to practice programme before making an application to rejoin the register.
Returning to midwifery practice
If you have taken a break from midwifery practice but your registration is still active you need to speak to your employer for support. When you return to work you must have submitted your intention to practise form for the current supervisory year (1 April to 31 March) and have a named supervisor of midwives. Along with your employer, your supervisor will support your return to work.
If your registration was removed by one of our fitness to practise panels, you will have to apply for restoration to the register.
