Revalidation

ABOUT REVALIDATION

Revalidation is the most trending topic among doctors nowadays. Revalidation was introduced in 2012 and it was aimed that by 2015/16 all licenced doctors will have been revalidated. The purpose of revalidation is to make sure that doctors are not only are up to and fit to practice but also, that they’re supported whilst their challenging career path. This can assure that licensed doctors are utilising all the available sources for their development and deliver best care for their patients.

Doctors must be revalidated every 5 years, and in order to comply with this – doctors must complete an annual appraisal which is undertaken by a suitably appointed appraiser.

Only licenced doctors will have to be revalidated and information on the following sections must be provided:

  • Evidence of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) i.e. training courses, performance reports
  • Quality improvement i.e. case reviews
  • Serious Untoward Events i.e. noteworthy events and their outcomes
  • Feedback from colleagues
  • Feedback from patients (where necessary)
  • Review of compliments and complaints
