For all doctors:
• Revalidation started 3rd December 2012
• Every doctor who is fully registered with a licence to practise will need to revalidate.
• This includes doctors in foundation year two and specialty training
• As a doctor in foundation or specialty training, you will revalidate in a similar way to other licensed doctors.
• Your ‘responsible officer’ will make a recommendation to the GMC that you are up to date, fit to practise and should be revalidated.
As a doctor in training, you will be generating this information to meet the requirements of your curriculum and training programme.
All doctors are required to provide information on significant events,complaints and compliments for revalidation, as well as to demonstrate what reflection on their practice this prompted, and any areas for development informed by this event
A recommendation will be made to the GMC by your Responsible Officer based on information provided by:
