Look up a health practitioner


Check if your health practitioner is qualified, registered and their current registration status

Renewal of registration is due by 30 November

02 Nov 2017

 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners have until 30 November to renew their registration on time.

About 600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners are due to renew their registration. The quickest and easiest way to renew is online.

Practitioners should act on the series of email and hard copy reminders being sent to them by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), on behalf of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia. Anyone who hasn’t received a reminder to renew should phone AHPRA on 1300 419 495.

This year we are asking practitioners to check that their qualification(s), including grandparenting provisions of those who transitioned to the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme, are recorded correctly on the register.

If, when renewing online, it says ‘qualified under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law in accordance with section 303(1)(c) of the transitional provisions’, just click 'yes', it's correct.

If it doesn't say this, and references a certificate IV qualification, check that this is accurate. If not, click 'no' and update.

This extra but important step when renewing registration this year will help maintain the integrity of the national register, which helps to protect the public

For questions about this please call the AHPRA NT office on (08) 8901 8500.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners whose application for general registration is received on time, or during the following one month late period, can continue practising while their application is processed.

Individuals who do not apply to renew their registration by 31 December 2017 will have lapsed registration. They will be removed from the national register of practitioners and will not be able to use the protected title or practise as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners.
