Why are you asking for equal opportunities data?

The College commits to ensuring equal opportunities across all our activities. To track this, we ask that all users with online accounts complete an equal opportunities form on Update My Details.

Any personal and sensitive data that you provide will be used solely for equal opportunities monitoring purposes. We will process it in line with the Data Protection Act.

How do I update my name?

If you have changed your name - for example, due to marriage - you cannot change this on Update My Details. Instead, please contact us:

You will need to send us documentary evidence. This might be a photocopy or scan of your marriage certificate or passport.

If you have already changed your name with the General Medical Council (GMC), you do not need to send evidence. But, please do let us know.

What if I have other changes?

To request any other changes, including fields that you cannot update, please contact us:
