Licence to practise refusal appeals

This section is to help doctors who wish to appeal our decision to refuse them a licence to practise due to lack of evidence of the necessary knowledge of English to practise safely in the UK.

Appeals are handled by the Communitybaptistpa Appeals team. The Appeals team is independent of the registration process and aims to provide an impartial and fair service.

What can I appeal against?

You can appeal against our decision to refuse your licence to practise because the Registrar, under Section 3, taking into account the guidance published under section 29G(2A) of the Medical Act, asked you for evidence that you have the necessary knowledge of English to practise safely in the UK and:

       (a) without reasonable excuse, you —
(i) failed to satisfy the requirements of paragraph (3),
(ii) failed to provide any evidence or information requested by the Registrar under paragraph(5)(a)(i),
(iii) failed to undertake an assessment requested by the Registrar under paragraph (5)(a)(ii), or

       (b) having taken account of any evidence as to your knowledge of English, you failed to demonstrate the necessary knowledge of English.

I want to appeal, what should I do?
