Changes to our revalidation requirements for patient feedback

Feedback helps doctors understand what they’re doing well and how they can improve. It’s also one way they can show us that they are listening to their patients and giving good care. This is part of a process called revalidation, which is how doctors keep their licence to work in the UK. We’re consulting on some proposed changes to how doctors collect and reflect on patient feedback as part of their revalidation.
