If you wish to change your title to Dr or to a title other than Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms or Mx, we need to see documentary evidence that you are entitled to use your new title. Therefore, after you have submitted your application, please send documentary evidence of your entitlement to use your new title to us using one of the following methods:
1. Scan and email to: email@example.com
2. Fax to 0333 444 8486 (+44 333 444 8486 from overseas)
3. Post to:
UK Deed Poll Service
If you require a change of title to Dr, and you are a medical doctor or a dentist, you only need to enter your GMC or GDC reference number in the comments box in section 1 of the application form.
If you require a change of title to a title other than Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms, Mx or Dr, please tick the “Other” box and enter your desired new title in the comments box on the application form (which must be a recognised and genuine British title).
If we do not receive satisfactory evidence of your entitlement to use your new title or we do not accept your new title, we will proceed with your application but omit your change of title. Therefore, your Deed Poll documentation will only show your name change.
Please note, if you have purchased a title purporting to allow you to use a title such as Sir, Lord, Laird or Lady, we will not recognise such a title because you cannot purchase a genuine British title.
