Veterinary surgeons voluntary removal and restoration

Voluntary removal

If you are no longer practising as a veterinary surgeon in the UK and you do not wish to be a member of the RCVS and use the post nominals MRCVS, you can voluntarily remove your name in the ‘My Account’ area. You will need to know your login details. Alternatively, you can complete a Voluntary Removal Form (see the 'Related documents' box).

If you are voluntarily removed from the Register, you can apply to be restored to the Register at a later date.

If you have voluntarily removed your name from the Register, you may be restored to the Register by completing the Voluntary Restoration Form (see the 'Related documents' box). Your restoration form will need to be submitted with a copy of your valid passport or EU ID card, the restoration fee and the annual registration fee of the membership category you wish to restore to.
