Revalidation: Guidance for GPs
Question and Answer (Q&A) Bank
The Q & A bank provides an easy to navigate information resource, containing questions and answers developed by the RCGP Specialty Advisers with sample scenarios and links to relevant resources in each section.
We have also incorporated a number of generic revalidation Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) developed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges.
RCGP Example Portfolios
The RCGP has developed Example Portfolios to demonstrate how GPs in a variety of roles can demonstrate they meet the appraisal and revalidation standards set by the GMC.
Each portfolio has been authored by a RCGP Specialty Adviser with a specific area of expertise.
The following toolkits have been developed to offer guidance in specific areas and can be considered as supplementary guidance to the RCGP Guide to the Revalidation of General Practitioners.
RCGP Revalidation Survey
There is a continuing need to ensure that revalidation, delivered through annual appraisal, supports GPs in their personal and professional development and facilitates quality improvements in practice. The RCGP has gathered feedback from GPs on their experience of revalidation to date and will use its findings to support future planning and develop its current guidance.

Supporting Information for appraisal and revalidation: guidance for General Practitioners
The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and Faculties’ Core Guidance describes the supporting information that all doctors are required to collect for revalidation, providing a common template for each College and Faculty to add specialty-specific information.
Supporting Information for appraisal and revalidation: guidance for General Practitioners (PDF) is the RCGP version of that document.
