Please note, we recently conducted a retrospective reconciliation of registration numbers over the last five years due to a reporting issue, as a consequence there have been minor restatements of the numbers in this table compared to the data presented in previous years.

The above summary does not include all status changes and year-end totals may not always reflect figures alongside.

In addition to the above, two people were erased, seven people were suspended from the Register for conduct issues, one person suspensions ended and four people were restored. 58 were removed from the Register for failing to keep an up to date registered address.
