Eligibility Substantive NHS Consultant


Appointment to a substantive consultant post in the UK National Health Service requires the applicant to be listed on the General Medical Council (GMC) Specialist Register. 

Doctors with a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or a Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration via the Combine Programme (CESR)(CP) who have completed an approved training programme in the UK and are eligible for entry onto the Specialist Register. Applicants can be short-listed if they are within six months of obtaining a CCT, CESR (CP) and must have written evidence of the confirmed date.

You may be eligible for direct entry onto the Specialist Register if you are a national of an EEA country (or Switzerland) and you have a specialist medical qualification that is acceptable for mutual recognition. 

Alternatively, the applicant should possess a Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR).  A CESR enables doctors who have not completed an approved UK training programme to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and experience are equivalent to the relevant CCT curriculum to join the Specialist Register. The CESR application requires you to prepare evidence and it can take six to nine months to process.   You should submit your evidence to the GMC who will forward on to the Royal College for consideration.  You will be advised that you will hear an outcome within three months.  You cannot be considered for a substantive appointment during this process, you must be on the specialist register.  

Applications from doctors with appropriate specialist training and experience who are not listed on the GMC Specialist Register can be considered for a locum consultant post (up to two years) if no substantive consultant appointment is made. Whilst in locum employment, an application to obtain a CESR and entry onto the Specialist Register can be made.
