Appraisal & Revalidation

Appraisal & Revalidation

The role of appraisal is a supportive forum with confidential discussion. 

The purposes of medical appraisal are to:

  1.  To demonstrate fitness to practise for revalidation
  2. To plan professional development
  3. To consider personal needs
  4. To help doctors and their organisations work together

We want an appraisal to achieve: 

  • Good, safe, professional, resilient, confident, compassionate, principled, practical, healthy, diligent, kind doctors
  • That is how it leads to better patient care

A rule of thumb:  A good appraisal is felt to be useful by the doctor.

Can we move from:  ‘I need to postpone my appraisal because I am under a lot of pressure’  to ‘I need my appraisal because I am under a lot of pressure’
