What comprises an assessment?
Your assessment depends on the nature of your work, and whether you're still working. Assessments can include workplace-based assessment and tests of knowledge and skills. The content of your assessment will depend on your specialty, the nature of your practice and whether you're currently in work. The assessors will judge your performance against the standards in Good medical practice.
Why do we assess you?
We carry out these assessments to get an independent opinion of your performance. This could be to help an investigation or MPTS hearing. Or it could be to inform a review of undertakings you have agreed. Please see the relevant section below.
