Revalidation Doctors

Revalidation for Doctors

All licensed Doctors must undergo a process of revalidation. This is to demonstrate to the GMC (General Medical Council) that you are up to date with all relevant training and can comply with current professional standards. For this reason, revalidation is essential to all medical practitioners looking to gain locum doctor jobs.

During revalidation, a doctor’s performance is assessed through an annual appraisal. All information from this appraisal is given to a Responsible Officer who will then make a recommendation to the GMC about the competency of the doctor in question. Revalidation must happen every 5 years

What must I do during the revalidation process?

Doctors must provide a number of documents and information in order to demonstrate their medical capability. During revalidation, the following sections are needed:

  • Evidence of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) i.e. training course, performance reports
  • Quality improvement
  • Serious Untoward Events
  • Feedback from colleagues
  • Feedback from patients
  • Review of complaints and commendation
