NCPS | Retirement Policy

A Registrant of the Society who wishes to retire can opt to become a Companion of the Society, to continue to receive newsletters, updates and invitations to Society events.

Retiring registrants will be required to return their original membership certificate.

The Terms and Conditions of this policy are as follows:

  • ‘Retiring’ registrants are those who have ceased to practice
  • Retiring registrants who participate in this scheme agree to be bound by the Society’s Code of Ethics
  • Companions of the Society who were previously registrants must cease using the Accredited Register Quality Mark logo
  • Retiring registrants will notify the Society at any time should their status change for example should they start to practice again (part time practice, voluntary practice, and private practice are all included in this)

The Chief Executive of the Society will assess each request.
