Presentation of MRCP(UK) Diploma

Candidates who have been elected to Membership via any of the three Colleges can expect to receive their MRCP(UK) Diploma by post.

Candidates residing in the UK should expect to receive their diploma via special delivery within 8 weeks of being elected to membership although timescales may vary. For candidates resident outside of the UK please allow a minimum of 10 weeks for delivery.

The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, will dispatch diplomas via special delivery to both UK and international candidates.

The Royal College of Physicians of London offers the following alternatives to candidates who may experience difficulties with their local postal service:

  • Candidates are welcome to arrange collection of their MRCP(UK) diploma via a courier of their choice. Candidates who wish to use this option are required in the first instance to submit an invoice which should reflect full settlement of all fees associated with the collection and delivery of their diploma. Failure to do so will result in the diploma not being handed to the courier.
  • Candidates can provide MRCP(UK) Central Office with a UK postal address as an alternative to their registered address. Candidates using this option can arrange courier of their MRCP(UK) diploma from the UK address provided at their own expense.
  • Candidates can arrange for an appointed person to collect their MRCP(UK) diploma direct from Central Office. An email request must be sent in the first instance confirming the full name of the appointee along with the date and time they intend to collect the diploma. Confirmation will be given on whether collection will be possible at the proposed date and time. Upon arrival the appointee will be required to show one valid form of identification before the diploma can be handed over.

Delivery of MRCP(UK) Diploma

Candidates are strongly advised to ensure their correspondence details are correct and up to date in their MRCP(UK) online account as this will help to avoid any loss or delay of their diploma.

Diplomates who require a replacement diploma are advised to submit a request to MRCP(UK) central office charges a re-inscription fee of £35.00 for this service, unless the individual is a Fellow of any of the three Royal Colleges, in which case no charge will apply.

Please note that in order to comply with UK law we cannot accept credit/debit card details sent in emails/via the contact form on this website, either in the body text or as attachments.  If you do send card details in this manner it is entirely at your own risk.  Card details received in emails or as attachments will be immediately deleted and payments will not be actioned.  Card payment can only be made by telephone.  If you need to make payment for a certificate please contact MRCP(UK) central office by phone.

A replacement diploma should be issued within 2 weeks of the fee being processed.
