Doctors in the United Kingdom are being provided with final guidance to help them prepare supporting information for their annual appraisals under the new revalidation scheme.
Fourteen specialty guidance frameworks were published on 28 June by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and its member colleges and faculties.
Neil Douglas, chairman of the academy, said that the guidance was consistent with the General Medical Council’s own supporting information guidance and was welcomed by the GMC.
He said that it would be “key to making the process of appraisal and revalidation more straightforward and consistent for all doctors, irrespective of their medical specialty.”
