Remote consultations and prescribing by telephone, video-link or online: Call for evidence

Published 28 February 2020

The call for evidence is now closed.

Thanks to those individuals and organisations who responded or engaged with us. We had asked for views on remote consultations and prescribing via telephone, video-link or online. This will help us decide if we need to change our professional advice on remote consultations and prescribing. It ran from 26 November 2019 to 25 February 2020.

Consultation on changes to our revalidation requirements for patient feedback

Published 24 July 2019

As part of our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we have decided to delay publication of the findings and outcomes of this consultation until later this year. This is to support the health service in prioritising frontline clinical care for patients during this challenging time.

We ran a public consultation on some proposed changes to how doctors collect and reflect on patient feedback as part of their revalidation from 30 April to 23 July 2019.

This consultation is now closed. 

Please contact our patient feedback review team at if you have any questions about the review.
