34The Medical Register and the Overseas Medical Register

(1)The Registrar shall in every year cause to be printed, published and sold, under the direction of the General Council, a publication called "the Medical Register", being a correct register of all persons appearing in the principal list in the register of medical practitioners, as existing on the 1st January in that year except those whose registration is for the time being suspended and those whose registration is for the time being subject to conditions.

(2)The General Council may if they think fit direct in respect of any year that, in addition to the publication of the Medical Register in that year, the Registrar shall, at such time during that year as the Council may determine, cause to be printed, published and sold, under the direction of the Council, a publication called "the Overseas Medical Register", being a correct register of all persons appearing in the overseas list in the register of medical practitioners, as existing on such date in that year as the Council may direct, except those whose registration is for the time being suspended and those whose registration is for the time being subject to conditions.

(3)The Medical Register and the Overseas Medical Register shall each be arranged so as to show the names of the persons included in it in alphabetical order of surnames, with their addresses and registered qualifications and such other particulars (if any) as the General Council may direct in relation to that Register.

(4)A copy of either of the said publications purporting to be printed and published in accordance with subsection (1) or (2) above shall be evidence (and in Scotland sufficient evidence) that the persons specified therein are registered fully or provisionally in the principal list or the overseas list in the register of medical practitioners, as appears from the publication; and the absence of the name of any person both from such a copy of the Medical Register and from such a copy of the Overseas Medical Register shall be evidence (and in Scotland sufficient evidence) that he is not registered under section 3, 15, 19 or 21 above.

(5)In the case of a person whose name does not appear either in the Medical Register or the Overseas Medical Register—

(a)a certified copy, under the hand of the Registrar, of an entry relating to that person in the register of medical practitioners or the register of medical practitioners with limited registration shall be evidence (and in Scotland sufficient evidence) of that entry; and

(b)a certificate of registration issued under paragraph 5 of Schedule 3 to this Act in respect of that person shall be evidence (and in Scotland sufficient evidence) that he is registered fully or provisionally or with limited registration as appears from the certificate.
