You can apply for a Practice Licence at any time of year. Applications will be processed within 28 days.
Please call ICB, or send an email, to request the Practice Licence Application Form to be posted out to you.
You can request the form to be sent by email but it must be returned in hard copy.
You are usually required to retain your Practice Licence even if you have reduced the size of your practice, are no longer charging a fee, or have reached retirement age. Please contact ICB on 0845 060 2345 to discuss the details of your situation.
If you are no longer in public practice please let ICB know at the earliest opportunity and send notification in writing. You will be sent a Non-Practising Declaration Form to sign to confirm you have closed the practice and completed the necessary steps to officially cease trading.
You will be liable for all outstanding Practice Licence fees up to and including the forthcoming year's renewal fee unless written notification that you have ceased practising is received at least one month prior to the due date of your renewal fee.
