Making changes to your registration

Categories:
  • Organisations we regulate

If you need to make changes to your regulated activities, the locations from which you provide them or any conditions placed upon you, you will need to submit an application to us.

The form you need depends on the changes you want to make. If you are uncertain, or if you're a GP or other primary medical services provider or manager, use our form finder tool on the right to help you decide.

Changes to conditions and locations

To change or remove a condition, you must apply to us to do so.

Conditions of registration may be routine and define a regulated activity or location that a provider is registered to carry on. They may also, where we have concerns about compliance, require improvements to a service within set timescales to ensure essential standards are met.

Changes to partnerships

We changed the way we register partnerships in February 2013 to make the process more efficient whilst ensuring it remained rigorous and met the requirements of the law.

Show forms for adding and removing partners

In February 2013, we changed the way we register these providers - by including the members of the partnership as a condition of the registration. Providers registered before this (i.e. those without such a condition) must cancel their registration when there is a change in the membership and the newly formed partnership must apply as a new provider.

If you have this condition on your registration, you can apply to add or remove partners without changing the provider - you just need to change the condition.

You can read more about how to make changes to partnerships in the document below or find out more about how Making changes to partnerships is now more efficient.
