Doctors without a formal Faculty qualification, who spend the majority of their practice in occupational medicine, may join the Faculty for the purpose of revalidation. This will create a formal, prescribed connection, in accordance with the Responsible Officer (RO) Regulations 2010, enabling access to the Faculty’s RO. This subscriber category may be particularly applicable to those doctors who:
- work in independent practice
- work for an organisation which is not a designated body
- work for an organisation which is a designated body that plans to contract with the Faculty to access the Faculty RO. If this is the case there needs to be a formal arrangement between the organisation and the Faculty.
This link with the Faculty as a revalidating subscriber does not, in itself, confer the right to append any postnominals.
For an assessment of your eligibility to join the Faculty by this route, please complete and submit the application form .
