Annual Retention Update

The process for doctors to retain registration with the Medical Council for 2016-2017 will open shortly, and instructions will issue via email and post to all doctors once the process is open for completion.

This year, fees have been reduced for doctors in their first three years of practice, and fees will remain unchanged for all doctors under 70.  The fee for doctors over 70 has been adjusted by €3 for the purposes of rounding.  You can view more information on the fee structure here

Doctors will receive the Annual Retention Certificate electronically to make the process more efficient. As no physical certificate will be issued it’s particularly important to ensure that personal contact details are up-to-date.

A notice to retain registration will be placed on our website in the coming weeks.
