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 www.gmc-uk.org or our Trust Revalidation intranet page (only accessible from a Trust computer) for more information. Alternatively, contact our revalidation support team on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0117 3403369 or 0117 3403859.
