Returning to a health career

Allied health care professionals and support workers

You may wish to return to working in the NHS, perhaps after a break to raise a family, or after a career change.

Opportunities to return to practice depend on the area of the country you are in, your profession and how long you have been away. You may need to update your registration or undertake a refresher course. Financial assistance may be available, depending on your locality.
