Revalidation is your personal responsibility, and here are some useful tips to make the process smoother for you: -

  • Read the GMC advice
  • Ensure you're aware of your revalidation date. If you're unsure, login to your GMC Connect account.
  • Plan which supporting evidence you plan to present at each appraisal. 
  • Remember not everything is needed every year
  • Make the most of your appraiser/appraisal.
  • Try to complete your PDP and record any reasons why you have not.
  • If you have been unwell, on sabbatical, or on maternity leave, record this is the "exceptional circumstances" section of your appraisal documentation. 
  • Link to a Responsible Officer (RO) - keep the RO informed of any significant change in circumstance (e.g. moving base, change in role)
  • Guidance on finding a Responsible Officer can be found here
  • Read the Revalidation in Wales section link.
