This page provides resources, links and guidance on appraisal and revalidation to help GPs demonstrate that they meet required standards.
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 new RCGP Guide to Supporting Information for Appraisal and Revalidation aims to reduce inconsistencies in interpretation of requirements and simplify and streamline the appraisal and revalidation process.
The intention of the RCGP Mythbusters is to dispel some of the misconceptions around revalidation and appraisal and, in conjunction with the Guide to Supporting Information for Appraisal and Revalidation, promote a fair, supportive, and constructive revalidation and appraisal process. We want this to be a useful guide and welcome feedback to help us ensure it is kept up to date and relevant for GPs, appraisers and ROs alike.
The RCGP Guide to supporting information for appraisal and revalidation was informed by a number of stakeholder activities, including a patient representative workshop and a survey of GPs in a variety of sectors undertaken in 2015.
