Having an annual whole practice appraisal
It is your responsibility to have an annual appraisal that:
- is carried out by a registered and licensed medical practitioner who meets our criteria
- has Good medical practice as its focus and complies with the
- covers and reflects on your whole practice and performance, as outlined in the Supporting information for revalidation and appraisal guidance
- is carried out with the appraiser and appraisee in the same room, or by video link, so that each is visible to the other
- is supported by appropriate systems and processes (eg to verify supporting information)
- is verifiable, if we ask you to give us evidence about the appraisal.
We'll ask your appraiser to tell us if and why any supporting information is missing at your appraisal. If there is any outstanding information, you will need to explain to your appraiser your plans for collecting this.
You should keep hold of the supporting information discussed at your appraisals since your last revalidation. You may be asked for it by a new appraiser, responsible officer (or the GMC) to verify you have met all requirements for revalidation. If you previously had a connection, this may include information from appraisals carried out by a designated body.
