Revised guidance on Returning to Practice

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) has recently published updated guidance on returning to practice. This can be seen here.

This guidance is aimed at doctors who have been absent for three months or more and includes checklists for use pre (where possible) and post absence to conduct an individual evaluation of the doctor returning to practice. The guidance also gives recommendations for a return to practice action plan and suggests an organisational policy to ensure an effective return to practice in the interests of patient safety.

The guidance was developed by a working group comprising many of the Medical Royal Colleges and Faculties, including the RCoA, and we will be developing further resources to assist with returning to practice in the Revalidation Guidance section of the website.
