Changes to your name

If you change your name while you are registered with us and you want to use your new name when you practise, you must tell us within one month of the change, so we can update the register.

You only need to notify us if you want to use your new name to practise - if you choose to keep using your previous name, you do not need to notify us.

To notify us of your new name:

  • fill in a Changing your registered name form
  • submit a scan or photocopy of an official document which confirms the change. For example, this could be a copy of a marriage or civil partnership certificate, a copy of a enrolled deed poll, or a decree absolute or final order. Do not send original documents as we may not be able to return these to you.

Read the guidance included with the form carefully to help make sure that you provide all the information we need, in the correct format. There’s no charge for changing your name.

Updating your name 

If haven’t legally changed your name, but you want it to appear on the register differently from how it is currently displayed (to add your middle name, for example):

  • fill in a Changing your registered name form
  • submit a scan or photocopy of an identity document which confirms all the parts of your name you want to appear. This could be a copy of a valid passport, EEA identity card, or driving licence, for example. Do not send original documents as we may not be able to return these to you.

Read the guidance included with the form carefully to help make sure that you provide all the information we need, in the correct format. There’s no charge for updating your name.
