How does it work?

Post date: 04/07/2017 | Time to read article: 1 mins

The information within this article was correct at the time of publishing. Last updated 14/11/2018

All qualified GPs should be participating in annual appraisal. They will be collecting supporting information for each appraisal, and for revalidation this information will be submitted to responsible officers who will make their recommendations to the GMC.

For newly-qualified GPs, the appraisal and revalidation process starts from the date of completion of training and receiving the certificate of completion of training (CCT).

The deanery will no longer be the designated body. Doctors must ensure they are registered on the performers’ list as qualified GPs.

Newly-qualified GPs should arrange to have their first annual appraisal between 9 and 15 months after receipt of their CCT. They should contact the GMC to be allocated a revalidation date.
