Consultation on changes to our revalidation requirements for patient feedback

Published 24 July 2019

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. 

We are currently analysing the responses and aim to publish revised guidance in early 2020. 

Please contact our patient feedback review team at patientfeedback@gmc-uk.org if you have any questions about the review.
