Supporting Information for Revalidation

As part of revalidation, licensed doctors need to develop a portfolio of supporting information which shows how they are meeting the professional values set out in Good Medical Practice. There are six types of supporting information that doctors will be expected to provide and discuss at their appraisal at least once in each five yearly cycle, which fall into the following key areas:

Keeping up-to-date
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Review of practice
Quality improvement activity - clinical audit, review of clinical outcomes or case review / discussion
Significant events or incidents

Feedback on practice
Feedback from colleagues
Feedback from patients and/or carers
Review of complaints and compliments

Doctors are also required to submit general information each year about their professional work including the scope of their practice, a record of their annual appraisals, their current personal development plan, and completed health and probity declarations.

The GMC has outlined requirements for doctors in its guidance Supporting Information for Appraisal and Revalidation which recommends that doctors in specialist practice should consult the supporting information provided by their College or Faculty.

The College guidance on supporting information for revalidation is available to download below.
