- Do private practice owners have to complete the proof of professional practice form or just supply the other evidence requested in the guidance to demonstrate working practice?- I just wanted clarify what is required for Proof of Provision to Service Users (i.e., we have invoices to patients, receipts issued to patients and a payment run from the HSE, is this enough?)
Lee McLoughlin
36:35
Yes, please complete the form as well as supplying the documents. Thanks you, Lee

Another query: I am applying as an S38 as a returning to practice. I'm currently going through recognition as I trained in UK. I've seen the requirements for return to practice but what will I need to submit for proof I have done the return to practice?I mean submit to CORU

Regarding Return to Practise: You can view the information here:https://coru.ie/health-and-social-care-professionals/registration/registration-requirements/return-to-practice/You can also email registration@coru.ie to request the return to practise form from the team.

For the CPD certifications - the ones I have on file are COVID Safeguarding and Foot & Ankle show attendance. Is that sufficient? I understand things like Record-Keeping would fall under Manual Handling and are not sufficient.
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
50:39
From Lee: Regarding name variation: This should not be a problem, you can declare this when making your application to clarify the situation. If the team are unclear they will contact you for clarification. It is a common occurrence and it should not have a negative impact.
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
51:08
Question for Lee: I have recent written HSE verification, letter of “good standing “ from professional body, evidence of practice etc But I can’t find my original College of Surgical Chiropody, Cork, cert. Having the above, including success in HSE exam, do I need that cert?
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
52:02
From Lee: CPD certificates will not impact your application for registration. CPD will be required of you however when you join the register.
Lee McLoughlin
52:29
We would require the certificate, is it possible to contact the university and ask for a copy or perhaps even a headed letter which confirms the qualification title, year of award and your name.
Lee McLoughlin
53:34
Hi Donal, this should not be an issue. You can declare this when making your application for registration. If the team is unsure they will contact you for clarity and guide you on how to proceed.
Eimear Cullen
55:07
Can documents be notorised by a UK solicitor?
Lee McLoughlin
55:45
Yes, that is perfectly fine so long as we can identify them by stamp, clear name etc
Martina O'Brien
01:04:18
Sorry what was just mentioned about signing on the line? Which form is that in relation to?
Lee McLoughlin
01:05:05
This refers to the statutory declaration. Please ensure the person certifying is signing in the correct place on the last page.

For proof of operational business address, I have a bank statement that has my name on it but not my business name and it has my personal address on it. I have a supporting cheque book with a corresponding account number that designates it as a business account. Is that ok?

Martina O'Brien

I had asked a question regarding CPD. I have to provide this as I am a private practice owner so have to provide to prove I have operational business. he ones I have on file are COVID Safeguarding and Foot & Ankle show attendance. Is that sufficient? I understand things like Record-Keeping would fall under Manual Handling and are not sufficient.
Martina O'Brien
01:13:12
Ok great thank you
Angela McAnearney
01:13:27
I think record keeping is relevant
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
01:13:38
As long as CPD relates to the profession it shouldn't be an issue. If you send them in a member of the team will review and if not ok they will contact you to clarify it or see if you have anything else, otherwise they will not be in contact and just put it forward.
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
01:14:45
If i'm carrying out supervised practice in a private practice while doing return to practice am I covered as i wouldn't have a complete CORU registration yet...
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
01:15:44
Yes you can carry it out as you are under supervision of a registered private practitioner.
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
01:20:48
Do they need the full accounts or just the front page with the info summarised?
Anita Murray CPD Officer Podiatry
01:21:08
Just the front page, it is just to verify it is evidence of your private practice
