Under section 31(f) of the Medical Registration Act (Cap 174), names of medical practitioners will be removed from the Register of Medical Practitioners if they have not renewed their practising certificates (PC) for a continuous period of 5 years, and cannot be contacted or sent any document using their particulars in the Singapore Medical Council (SMC)'s Register.
Every year, in October, the SMC will publish a list of doctors who have not renewed their PCs for a continuous period of 5 years and who could not be contacted at their last known places of practice and residential addresses. Doctors whose names are listed must contact the SMC Secretariat within 2 weeks of publication of the notice. If they fail to reply within the stated time, the Medical Council may remove their names from the Register, pursuant to Section 31(f) of MRA.
Please refer to the following link for the list of medical practitioners whose names have been removed from the Register with effect from 23 Feb 2010.
The SMC reserves all its rights.
