Doctor’s revalidation is the process in which the General Medical Council (the GMC) confirms the doctor’s right to practise in the UK. It is a requirement for any doctor who wishes to practise and is to provide assurance to the public, the patients and their employers that the doctors are fit to practise.
What is a doctor’s revalidation?
Doctor’s Revalidation is used to ensure that doctors are up-to-date with training and fit to practice medicine. It applies to all licensed doctors in the UK, both in the NHS and the private sector. All scopes of clinical practise are included, and all doctors must go through the revalidation process, typically every five years. Revalidation is the responsibility of the healthcare professional.
How does revalidation work?
Revalidation is a supportive and developmental process designed to identify if there are any possible areas of improvement and to check the doctor is still up to standard to practise. It runs over a five-year cycle and involves Doctors taking part in a robust appraisal process, getting together a portfolio to show they meet the standards they are required to. Each doctor must relate to a Responsible Officer who will look over and evaluate their portfolio and report back on their findings on the doctor’s fitness to practise. This service is free.
What will we do to help you with your Doctor’s Revalidation?
We are dedicated to supporting you during this process and explaining the steps as you go. Our doctor’s revalidation support makes the process as simple as possible for you. If you have not yet revalidated and need support through the entire process we can assist and provide you with:
- An e-portfolio
- E-learning for CPD and training
- Experienced dedicated RO
- Professional work cloud
These will help you collate the documentation you need for revalidation and simplify the process. You will receive a fully outsourced, risk-managed service that covers all elements of revalidation from appraisals and 360 feedback, to managing the GMC online account.
If you have already revalidated then we can offer an appraisal service accessed. Additionally, an experienced dedicated RO will help you build and maintain your documentation. That way you will be prepared for all revalidations in the future.
Please note that there will be a cost associated with your doctor’s revalidation requirements and we will be able to inform you of charges that are applicable to you on enquiry.
