Supporting information for appraisal and revalidation: guidance for physicians – Royal College of Physicians – 28 June 2012

“In readiness for the launch of revalidation at the end of 2012, the RCP has produced guidance for physicians on the supporting information required for appraisal and revalidation.

The guidance has been designed to offer practical examples of the types of supporting information that doctors might present at their annual appraisal and include in their revalidation portfolio, upon which their responsible officer will recommend to the General Medical Council (GMC) that they remain fit to practise. It has been widely consulted upon, with input from all physician specialties, and is applicable across the many areas of physician practice.

The GMC has set out the requirements for revalidation for all doctors in their Good Medical Practice framework for revalidation and their guidance on supporting information. The RCP guidance builds upon the GMC guidance to offer clear and practical examples, relevant to practising physicians.

The GMC recommends that doctors in specialist practice should consult the supporting information guidance provided by their college or faculty. This guidance expands on the headings provided by the GMC, by providing additional detail about the GMC requirements and what each college or faculty expects relating to this, based on their specialty expertise.  These expectations are laid out under ‘Requirements’.”
