Help and guidance

This page provides some help and guidance to licensed doctors for revalidation.

Our core guidance

Our framework for appraisal and our supporting information guidance explain what we require from you as a licensed doctor and how you can successfully revalidate.

You should read our supplementary guidance to help you understand how you can meet our requirements for revalidation (pdf). Your responsible officer has used this guidance to assess when you will be ready to have a recommendation made about you.

Other guidance for doctors

The medical royal colleges and faculties can also give you advice about how you can meet our requirements for revalidation. Their advice and guidance is available on their websites and will be helpful to all doctors who work in particular specialties or general practice regardless of whether or not they are members of these organisations.
