Registration as a visiting professional only allows the professional to practise on a temporary and occasional basis using their home State professional title in the language of that State. It does not permit the use of a professional title protected by the Health and Social Work Professions Order 2001.

For example, a Polish ‘fizjoterapeuta’ practising in the UK on a temporary and occasional basis must use that title and not the English equivalents ‘physiotherapist’ or ‘physical therapist’.
