Medical Revalidation

Medical Revalidation
As a Designated Body provide medical revalidation for Consultants, Speciality Doctors, Clinical Fellows, and Locum Doctors, who are registered with the Trust’s staff bank and maintain a contract with us. Junior doctors will be connected to the Designated Body of their associated deanery.

If you wish to use us as your Designated Body, you will need to complete an annual appraisal using our appraisal system. This would be done with a trained appraiser. We rely on the quality of these appraisals so we can make recommendations to the GMC for each individual doctor’s revalidation date.

Revalidation appraisals cover the following areas: 

  • Continuing professional development (CPD)
  • Quality improvement activities
  • Significant events
  • Review of complaints and compliments
  • Feedback from colleagues
  • Feedback from patients.

The appraisals need to cover the whole scope of a Doctor’s practice, including any work outside of the Trust that requires a GMC licence, and work for private employers. 

Visit the GMC website at or our Trust Revalidation intranet page (only accessible from a Trust computer) for more information. Alternatively, contact our revalidation support team on or telephone 0117 3403369 or 0117 3403859.
