Potential COVID-19 temporary registers


In response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) the government will be introducing emergency legislation that will allow professional regulators to create temporary registers for healthcare staff who have come off their professional register within the last three years.

This means the regulators would be able to temporarily register fit, proper and suitably experienced people, so that they could practise within the NHS.

Regulators have written out to all healthcare professionals who have come off the register within the last three years, asking if they would like to return to work either on the frontline or in another capacity, for example NHS 111, to ease pressures during the pandemic.

NHS England and NHS Improvement survey

NHS England and NHS Improvement has created a survey for those applying to the temporary registers. Those who register must complete the survey, so that their skills and areas of practice can be audited and they can be deployed appropriately.
