The GMC introduced revalidation early in 2013. This process means that every doctor on the GMC register will be assessed every five years against the criteria of the GMC’s Good Medical Practice framework by a Responsible Officer in their affiliated NHS body. The process allows the continuation of the basic license to practice and for most doctors it is as simple as completing a five year cycle of annual appraisal or ARCP.
Most general practitioners will be connected to the body holding the Performers List; for trainees the RO will be the Postgraduate Dean in Health Education East of England. This page will be updated as developments occur, but the following links provide current information.
