Information required for your appraisal

Information about your practice

In your appraisal portfolio, you must provide:

  • your personal details including your GMC reference number
  • details of the organisations and locations where you have worked as a doctor since your last appraisal, and the roles or posts held
  • a comprehensive description of the scope and nature of your practice
  • a record of your annual whole practice appraisals, including confirmation whether you are in any revalidation non-engagement, licence withdrawal or appeal process
  • your personal development plans and their reviews.

The GMC requires you to keep your basic personal details up-to-date and to include them in your appraisal portfolio.

Other 'appraisals'

If you have a portfolio career, you may have a separate performance review or 'appraisal' for some specific post(s) in your scope of practice, in addition to your main medical appraisal for revalidation. It is good practice to include the outputs of such meetings as supporting information in your appraisal and revalidation portfolio, so that your appraiser knows that that role has been reviewed and your reflection on the outcomes can be discussed.

Supporting information required by the Responsible Officer

The responsible officer may be aware of some clinical governance information, such as outcome data, or the results of an investigation or complaint, and request that you bring the information to your annual appraisal so that your reflection on it can be shared with your appraiser. It is important that your appraiser records whether any such information was included, and the outcomes of any discussion that took place in the summary of your appraisal.
