Accreditation process and supporting documents

Important notice - June 2021

Having successfully accredited over 100 GPwERs through the dermatology accreditation trial, the RCGP is working with dermatology partner organisations to identify a model of accreditation that is effective, scalable and affordable.

The RCGP, British Association of Dermatologists and the Primary Care Dermatology Society have agreed a process for the continued delivery of national GPwER accreditation in dermatology. 

 Preparations are underway for its re-launch and further information will be available on these pages in Autumn 2021.
