APPRAISAL AND REVALIDATION

This page holds information on GP Appraisal and Revalidation for GPs in KSS region.

Medical revalidation is the process by which the General Medical Council confirms the continuation of a doctor’s licence to practise in the UK. All doctors who wish to retain their licence to practise need to participate in revalidation. Revalidation is based on a local evaluation of doctors’ practice through appraisal.

Please see this NHS England guide for further information
