Working with doctors Working for patients

Meeting our requirements

In 2011 we published guidance to help doctors understand how to get ready to meet our requirements for revalidation and to support Responsible Officers in preparing for revalidation to start. We recognised that systems that for supporting doctors in organisations would be at different stages of maturity as revalidation got underway. Also, while in the future doctors will have a succession of ‘revalidation-ready’ appraisals behind them, this may not be the case for those scheduled for revalidation in the earlier stages.

Now that revalidation is becoming well-established, we have replaced this guidance with a summary of our requirements.
