GMC Revalidation

25 October 2012

Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt has confirmed that Revalidation will commence from 3rd December 2012.

 

His decision follows a declaration of readiness from the General Medical Council which confirms that Revalidation should begin before the end of 2012.

 

It is hoped that the introduction of a Revalidation process that is based on regular appraisals will improve doctors development and will help to provide a focus on professional standards. In doing this the GMC is confident that Revalidation will improve safety for patients and quality of care.
